This is a beautiful piece, Trevor, and a timely reminder that I must do my post about "McGahern country".

And yes, that quote on the ground under the seat in Ballinamore, is a goose-bump one.

Thanks Kim, I'm glad you enjoyed it - and I'm looking forward to reading your long overdue piece on McGahern country. Though I've been enjoying the fruits of your Dublin trip very much!

  • I have worked in politics, public policy and strategic communications for over 30 years. I was recently awarded a doctorate in Australian politics at the University of Sydney. My thesis was on the (changing) relationship between the ALP and unions. I have been blogging since November 2003 and over the past decade I have written many articles on politics, public relations and social media for newspapers, magazines and websites. I love literature particularly John McGahern and James Joyce. The header photo is of the Clarence River taken before dawn at Ulmarra in 2012.
