The inhabitants of a west Donegal community were reminded of the incredible power of the sea when a boulder was deposited on a local pier.

Sharing an image of the surprising sight on Facebook, Cllr Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig said: "Believe it or not , the sea lifted this boulder up and left it right at Cé Phort Arthur, Gaoth Dobhair.

"I am told it will be moved next week."
