Shortlisted : Cliffs of Moher

A few months ago, Mo wrote about requests by Moher Man on supporting the Cliffs of Moher into making it one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

Looks like Moher Man’s hard work have paid off, and it had been a very successful endeavour, for Cliffs of Moher is now officially one of the 28 shortlisted wonders for final round of voting. The voting for the final 7 will take place over the next two years (vote here!) of which the winners will be announced in 2011. So there you go, a long time yet, but it also means plenty of opportunity for you to push the cliffs into top 7!

The Cliffs of Moher is of late magnificently featured on the big screen in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Think of the scene when Dumbledore and Harry were on the quest for a horcrux hidden in a cave. Yup, that’s Cliffs of Moher right there. Pretty awesome, right?

    mo, it is crazy to have voting opening for so long, but i guess it’s a way for the site to milk the event to its maximum for publicity, revenue etc..?

    burns!, i thought you went there too! i agree with mo, that’s another reason to come back to ireland, hehehe…

    It’s settled then. I guess I’ll just have to come back. WooHOO! (I probably would’ve come anyway.)
