Finn McCool and the Giant’s Causeway | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Finn McCool and the Giant’s Causeway

Along the coast of Northern Ireland, there is a strange, unreal-looking place that, at first glance, seems like it must be man-made. But the Giant’s Causeway, as it is called, is a totally natural geological feature that was created from volcanic activity in the area 50 to 60 million years ago. The result of the cooled lava is a massive series of hexagon-shaped, interlocking stepping stones that, naturally, formed the basis for local legends. In this case, the Giant’s Causeway is linked to the myths of Finn McCool, perhaps the best named-hero of all the Irish legends.
