Country: Republic of Ireland

‘When the pandemonium of the disembarkation through the surf had abated, the various goods and chattels had been carried away, and the currachs had been carried up the beach, upside down over the heads of the rowers so that they looked like strange six-legged monsters, a peace descended on Inisheer that was to remain unbroken until the boat returned five days later' - Round Ireland in Low Gear.
