Flaccid Are The Geeks
What Lilliputian breed of a critter seeks to further restrain Nature in the last remnants of her glory? An uncrossable river is an affront to this Moses, arrested by flowing water, unable to reach the Promised Land. "Who will rid me of this troublesome torrent?" What bondage will satisfy this Canute? Why nothing less than a Bridge! Ten thousand euro would have leapt from a scabbard to quell this niagarous cascade. But to no avail. Our febrile governors are otherwise engaged, bearing gifts to the Greeks. And so like Moses, and the merry ole Duke, he marchs them up the hill, and the Red Sea (more brown then red?) fails to part. Quel surprise! They know the river is there. They worry about it. They offer ten grand to effeminate her. They fail. More worry and angst. And then they allow themselves to be entrapped by her wiles. And they have to be rescued. Wouldn't now be a good time to stop digging? To accept Nature and to respect it? My Presidency will eschew bridge building and all other manisfestations of timidity on the hills. ‘Mo lándícheall a dhéanamh ar son sliabhmhuintir na hÉireann gan muileann gaoithe, gan bóithre agus gan droichid'. The wild Ireland that I dreamed of would not be hermanetically sealed. Its rivers would run free.

Inishmeane: Not much to do, a tranquil place.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.

Inishsirrer: The only building that is not a ruin.

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.
