Accompanying text on page 41 of "Connemara Journal": 'I have heard Mannin Bay described as "nothing but a rock and a gull". It's all in the point of view, of course. Patrick Kavanagh, poet though he is, came to Connemara and found it nothing but a heap of stones. In England there are people who will tell you that Great Gable is nothng but that. It is possible to find a heap of stones beautiful - not to mention a rock and a gull'
