Tir na nOg ar Oilean Chleire

Tir na nOg ar Oilean Chleire

Tir na nOg is the house on the right of this photo. It’s a house that Colaiste Ciaran, an Irish summer school on the island, rents during the summer and where I spent a number of weeks years and years ago. The long, low building attached to the left is a canteen.

An Oige have a large hostel further down, near the stony beach. I remember looking with curiosity and longing at the kayaks in a nearby shed. Us students never got anything quite as exciting as those!

    That photograph reminds me of two things: The crap wet summer we just had and the poem by Patrick Kavanagh ‘Stony Grey Soil’

    That is a really nice picture.
    I remember it as the boys house from my youth and Irish college there:)
