The geography of Aran was explained to us on our first visit by an old man: 'The ocean', he said, 'goes all around the island.' A few days' rambles confirmed that fact, and revealed another: that to explore an island is to court obsession. We returned to live in Aran as soon as we could leave the city.

You're very welcome to the Island Ireland directory.
Many areas in Ireland are developing web sites... the results are often engaging and intriguing. The smallest village and the largest city are on an even par when it comes to site design and content, where a genuine enthusiasm can produce far better results than a big budget....
