The time has come to say goodbye to West Cork. Yes, it really has been six months, and we leave next Thursday.
But here’s the thing. If it isn’t obvious how much we have enjoyed it here, then let us spell it out – we have LOVED our time here, in Ballydehob, in West Cork, and in Ard Glas.
In fact we have loved it so much that we are buying a house! It’s the perfect house for us, with views across our beloved Roaringwater Bay, and lots of room for entertaining family and friends. We intend to call the house ‘Nead an Iolair’ – it’s pronounced Nad on Uller, and it means Eagle’s Nest. We will return this summer, although we don’t have an exact date. We plan to resume the blog when we return, although perhaps with some differences. At the very least our sub-title, Six Months in West Cork, will be changing. If you haven’t yet clicked the “Follow” button and left your email address, do it now – that way you will be notified when the blog starts up again.
And so, dear reader, we have a couple of questions for you. Even if you’ve been shy about commenting in the past, make an exception now and tell us –
Which posts, or which kinds of posts, have you most enjoyed?
What do you want us to write about that we haven’t yet covered?
And now, until we meet again…
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
And may you be in heaven half an hour
Before the Divil knows you’re dead.
Finola and Robert
