WashedUp is a photography project by Ciaran Burke capturing the details of beaches and featuring peoetry inspired by visits to the Irish coast.

Keem Beach, Achill, Co. Mayo

The road rambles into the decline, One way to go, nowhere else to be. The fresh water hurries to meet the sand, to wash with it to the sea. Golden stretch in stone green embrace beneath a blanket of grey, Torn to reveal a flash of blue, and a golden promise behind the hill.
