From above the drowned drumlins of Clew Bay, next to Westport on Ireland’s west coast, are a singularly impressive sight and are among the finest examples of this type of Quaternary landscape in the world.  The drumlins are miniature hills created as a retreating ice sheet, moving east to west, dumped some of the glacial till (loose rock and soil) trapped underneath the ice.   On the narrow strip of land between mountains and the sea the houses of Murrisk village stretch out along the shore.
