Sheep were in the waiting room

As my sister climbed around

Old Mulranny station

Achill bound

Hotel all closed up

Strains of olden days

When trains through Newport’s tunnel

Crossed the viaduct

Smoky haze


Mulranny micro climate


Looking south to Murrisk

Basks in summer sun

Corraun gives protection

Swim in swelling tides

A little bit of heaven

Morning rides


Mulranny where my heart broke

Remembering my grief

Happy days I’d spent there

Tears now brought relief

Erris to the North

Through the craggy pass

Clew Bay ever present

Sit now on the grass
