The formations roots trace back further than the Celtic Warriors in Ireland. They held the belief that the formations were made as a result of a race between two Giants to reach Ireland from Scotland. The Irish Giant Finn McCool (MacCumhaill in Gaelic) successfully won the race by cutting his hand off and throwing it onto the shore line, making him the first one to touch the shore.

The causeway is located on the map below and is designated a World Heritage Site.
