Inishmore – Celtic Pashmina Scarf
Hang Tag story card reads…
Inishmore (Árainn) is the largest of the Galway Aran Islands and is an extension of the famous limestone rocks of The Burren. The landscape of Inishmore is a patchwork of fields hemmed in by precariously balanced dry stone walls. The rugged landscape and unique culture of Inishmore and the other Aran islands has provided inspiration to artists and poets over the centuries, and W.B.Yeats famously advised J.M. Synge to ‘Go to the Aran Islands, and find a life that has never been expressed in literature’. Synge followed the advice, and it holds good for anyone wishing to experience the unique blend of landscape and culture found on the islands. It is said that a visit to Inishmore will remain in the heart for eternity.
