  • Disappearing Before my eye sky and sea intermingle as the sky touches the sea. What I still observed some moments ago as two different elements with a distinct horizon marking the division between them is no more. It has only been a matter of seconds before the scene changed abruptly. From being clear and transparent […]

Characters

  • Near Trácht Each Many of them are on the island, and all of them are lovely in their very own way. Some are outgoing and nosy, eager to know what is going on while there are others which show some sort of shyness and are, until the latest moment before meeting, undecisive whether to bark […]

  • Some days before it had been in the news already: a storm with a violent wind, in particular a tropical cyclone in the Caribbean or hurricane was spotted in the Atlantic, heading for Ireland. From the different directions I was advised how to behave according to what might come towards us. I was trigged by […]

The quality of meeting

  • Feeling of freedom What still was some days ago; the hustle and bustle of getting things straightened out before another year of schooling will start so were these past days ones of experiencing freedom without feeling any border too. As soon as school life has started however the overall atmosphere changed abruptly. Borders In a […]

Fite Fuaite

  • Trácht Each The present in the middle, the past at the back and the future lies in front. Having written this I look down at it and realise in a flash to be confronted with the complexity of ‘seeing’ what I just wrote down and the ‘feeling’ I have. When I think of these different […]

Inspired

  • Dedication. Committed to what one has to do. These are words coming towards me when I reflect on the way I used to meet him on the road. The old road I mean, the one leading you to the aerstráice, the airstrip which lies on the northern side of Inis Meáin. At certain times of […]

  • A mild temperature and the sun coming out makes a world of a difference. Like today, outdoor life starts already early in the morning as farmers on their tractors are heading for the fields even before the ferry comes in. Early It is not long after that I open the church. A radiance of light […]

Summer in her glory

  • Saturated blue Without even a tiny patch of cloud, the sky is coloured of a saturated blue which is also mirrored in the sea below. Although this signature seems sharply drawn, when it concerns the farther distance, I hardly can figure out what I really see; only vaguely I sense some irregular contours of the […]

  • Along your walks The very first time we met, I will never forget: while I was being busy, getting the tables and chairs out, positioning them in the right spot in order to be well-prepared for my guests to come, you were just about to take the turn of the corner at Creig na gCapaill, […]

  • Time of daylight is almost rounded and the moon, soon be full, has taking over. With a subtle touch, she soothes nature into a wholesome sleep leaving a trace of lavender coloured cover on the endless slabs of limestone. The day has been a fair one from which anybody could profit. The farmers high up […]

Early February It has not taken long though for this past winter has been rather mild temperature wise and throughout the […]

  • Bewildered

    On a fair day you can spot her coming, even from far way out. She, banríon na farraige or queen of the sea. Well, a queen she definitely is but in her own right, I would say. The way for example she presents herself, every morning and every evening, is endearing; with a straightened back […]

  • Polar Circle

    It is only with hesitation that I close the curtains to let her go. A glorious day it was So it was The day has been a glorious one. Like a souvenir the various shades in the still colouring sky are reflected on the surface of the sea. In a calm and serene mood, the […]

  • After the move

    I certainly do miss it. Farther away than a breath from centuries old fort my former cottage dwelling hardly was. A lovely and quiet spot and just below the top terrace which provides an all-round view over the island too. Dún Chonchúir When one comes, and visit Inis Meáin for a day trip or a […]

  • Lá na ceapaire or the day of the sandwich, New Years’ Day

    Even the thrush did not give his early morning concert. Walking under a deep blue sky with some stars still shining brightly from above and a sea with glittering foam caps beside me the strong wind was my only companion. Rough weather It seemed as if there were even more winds involved for whatever direction […]

  • Early November

    Embedded in a pale blue sky the few clouds are shaped like feathers of a seabird. Pointed southwards they are strongly driven by the wind coming from the north and blowing over Inis Meáin. It is cold this early morning but it is dry and that is the main thing. A fair day may lie […]
