Out of this World Sunset at Malin Head

Sunny Malin Head lived up to its name when scenes from Star Wars The Last Jedi was shot in Inishowen.

Some locals and photographers were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Millennium Falcon at sunset.

John McCandless, a local photographer and Star Wars fan, was delighted when Mark Hamill used this image as his Twitter cover photo.

Not expecting the sunny spell of weather, the production team had to bring in rain machines. Something that had never been needed in Malin Head before! Locals dont call it “Sunny Malin Head” just for fun!
