to Lewis Keating for the following poem about the weather
bomb at Downpatrick Head.
the sea baptised St Patrick.
the 13`th day of December, 2014 was the year,
weather bomb in the Atlantic , made shipping quake with fear.
the wild Atlantic way, Ballycastle braced it`s chin,
mighty, awesome, tidal waves, came pounding, pounding in.
tremendous wave came roaring in, it had built a deadly pace,
Briste disappeared in crashing foam, as it smashed on the
great cliff face.
water sailed high over the head, a sight to make you faint,
coming down in torrents, it landed on the saint.
water flooded St. Patricks house, and tumbled out the door,
down the head, to the big blow hole, and joined the sea once
Patrick set his stony face, of moving he had no notion,
shock it was, on that high cliff, to be baptised by the ocean.
waves that day, ripped and tore away, performing great erosion,
giant wave, tried to smash the cliff, like a massive wet explosion.
camera poised, Paul Doran stood, he clicked as that wave broke
caught that wall of water as it soared, high in the sky.
shot will be an icon, for many and many a day,
will show it to the visitors, on the wild Atlantic way.
Patrick still keeps sentinel, we wonder what he said,
evening on Downpatrick, when the sea fell on his head.
