My perfect West Cork day…………


After the madding crowds of summer have departed 

After the migrant swifts have left these shores for warmer climes

When all in West Cork is returning to peace and serenity

A walk to the very end of Brow Head to stand and face the ocean

Knowing the air you breath is as pure as it can be

Knowing the next landfall is the USA and

there’s nothing between you and it but the open sea

You’re all alone on the edge of the world

There’s not a living soul to be seen for miles



Followed by a visit to O’Sullivan’s in Crookhaven

A pint of the black stuff in Ireland’s most Southerly bar

A basket of the freshest shrimps the ocean can provide 

Consumed in front of the roaring fire
