'One Great Irish Spot': Discovering the Sacred on Inishmurray Island

You won’t find it listed in most Irish travel books and I have yet to see a travel website that mentions it. But in my book, Inishmurray Island is the greatest place in Ireland, perhaps on Earth.

Posted on August 24, 2014 at 1:00pm 6 Comments

I wrote this poem after months of studying Yeats' work and life for my undergrad thesis. One night, I found a BBC recording of him reading "The Lake Isle of Innisfree."
