“‘And some time make the time to drive out west Into County Clare, along the Flaggy Shore, In September or October, when the wind And the light are working off each other So that the ocean on one side is wild.” – Seamus Heaney, Post Script, 2003″

Along the rugged coastline of Clare, where cliffs meet the swirling sea, whispers of a mystical legend echo through the waves. According to local lore, the souls of lost fishermen were not released to the afterlife but were ensnared by the ocean’s depths.
