"I know that place . . . managed to help lose a boot belonging to a friend of mine over the edge of those cliffs once when a bunch of us were there and messing around. Not very intelligent, and the one booted friend wasn't too happy.
Great birdwatching (cliff/seabirds) there: if you have a pair of binoculars it's amazing. Bits fall off of those cliffs reasonably regularly -- if they are really cycling around there, they must be bored with [regular] life. (Maybe they need to get more interesting jobs?). Wondering why the PDF... "
Cliffs of Moherw

Further thoughts:
there's a tower on the cliffs built in the 1830's by a local landowner called O'Brien. He was also a member of parliament (MP) in London. The stone in the area of the cliffs is a limestone slate, which is still quarried in large sheets an inch or two thick.
The story goes that O'Brien made a bet with a few other MP's in London, that he could build a wall two inches thick, four foot high and a quarter of a mile long. He won the bet.
Couldn't find a great image, but here one:
