Inis Gluaire / Inishglora, County Mayo

More mystery and folklore than there might be in all earth, sea and heavens . . .

Recording, some extracts from ‘ Within the Mullett ‘, originally by Rita Nolan.

With apologies for my poor Gaelic pronunciation! (< 10 minutes, 8.7 Mb.)

“At Inisglóire in view of lrrus shore,
Should we the bodies of our sires explore,
We’d find them blooming, both nails and hair,
No human-flesh can fade or perish there.”

Roderick O’Flaherty book published in 1685, Ogygia: seu Rerum Hibernicarum Chronologia
