The call EI33WAW is associated with the county of Sligo, which is bordered by Co Leitrim to the North and Co Mayo to the south. Shaped during the ice age by massive glaciers segmenting the landscape, Benbulbin's imposing structure points to the Atlantic ocean. Under its shadow is Drumcliffe Churchyard, resting place for one of Irelands greatest poets - William Butler Yeats. Huge Atlantic rollers known as "Prowlers", a wave like no other with swells said to be up to 30m high, crash onto the beach at Mullaghmore - a surfers paradise and a discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way.
