Cu na Mara

Picture was taken early in a cold, dark and windy morning in Achill Island, west coast of Ireland (check the geotag if interested). A little later a huge storm rolled in from the Atlantic Ocean and spoiled my photographic fun.


I ran the name of the boat through Google translator which returned the result “God of Math”. Strange name. If anybody that speaks Gaelic sees this please drop me a line about the accuracy of the translation. Thanks!


Update: Thanks to Peep O'Daze for helping out with the translation. I started out on the wrong path by misreading the word mara as mata. From there on it only got worse with web based translators. Cu na Mara means Hound of the Seas. Mystery solved!
