Donegal Celtic Cross Forest Drone View

Planted by Forester Liam Emmery over a period of years he was able to plan out the design which would reveal itself every autumn to those flying overhead.

A particularly dry autumn has made it stand out even more this year, with the different green hues more prominent.

Unfortunately Emmery passed away in 2010 aged 51, before his creation became known to the public. His wife had forgotten about his elaborate plan until UTV approached her about it, telling them “I’d forgotten about the plantation, if he was here, we would have all heard about it because he would have been so proud.”
