According to the keeper of Nora's house-turned musem, whom I brutally made talk despite her badly sore throat, that's the day of the first time Nora *didn't* stand James up. She didn't turn up for their first date! No worries, you'll get a postcard with the photo of beautiful Nora.

So cute!
At Kinnegar we pair brewing tradition with a contemporary sense of adventure to produce clean, crisp, full-flavoured farmhouse beers. The brewery is named after the nearby Kinnegar Beach 
just north of Rathmullan in County Donegal.

He drew inspiration from Nora, her fiesty sister and family, but based on the letters they exchanged and the keepers story, Nora and their relationship seemed different than what's in the book. But it was just my impression.

Bloody foreigners, those Joces

The surname became popular in Ireland, where it was first introduced by Thomas de Jorse, of Norman Welsh extraction, who sailed from Wales in the reign of Edward I, and arrived with his fleet at Thomond in Munster. Thomas later married the daughter of O'Brien the Prince of Thomond in 1283. They settled in the far west of Connacht, on the borders of Mayo and Galway, where their descendants became completely gaelicised, ruling the territory in the barony of Ross - today still known as 'Joyce's Country' - up to the 17th century. The sept stood firm against the English (winning one notable skirmish on Lough Mask in 1587) and became powerful in Galway and Mayo. Today the surname is strongly associated with that area and a large majority of Joyces originate from counties Galway and Mayo.

Don't go to Cong (near Clifden) because....The good old days when women knew their place, what? (I'm beginning to sound like a Conservative MP)

I was sitting nicely in the hostel reading books I had managed to find here, while others were drinking and breaking glass in the local pub...

The Irish here are fantastic - kind and outgoing, but not intrusive. Eco-friendly and economical. I'll cycle to Cliffden since you've said it's not all about the Joyce, but many different Joyces :-) Thanks for the interesting info.

We will be in Clifden in July. The last time was 1991 in November. The sun wasn't splitting the trees. On our way to the cafe we turned into the empty main street only to be greeted by a Marilon Manson lookalike belting out hard rock on an electric guitar. Totally unexpected.


// Your Joyce epiphany is similar when we used to say  to Junior we're going to Ireland; for him Ireland was a cottage..

I hope the nice weather will return for your visit. I had sunny days in Galway, but since we arrived to Connemara it has been raining. I actually like it! It's windy, but the blows are soft and pleasant, and it's warm. I went hiking today early morning and got soaking wet. The park was empty. Two skylarks joined me on the way uphill. We gave up before the peak, because it started hailing (in my eyeballs - ouch). The only thing i don't like here is catlessness. Lots of Menschen mit Hunden on the leash, and only one relatively autonomous Irish dog in the pub. There's even vegan food in the shops (so i started to complain about plastic).

This was my smart hair style by the Galway wind and a pano from the morning.
