Inishtrahull – Celtic Pashmina Scarf

Hang Tag story card reads…

the most northerly island of Ireland, lying north of Donegal. in centuries past, as millions of emigrants left their homeland bound for the “New World” one emigrant recalled:

“Inishtrahull lighthouse was the last glimpse we would have of Ireland and everyone stayed on deck until it disappeared. They stayed on when they couldn’t see it anymore because the more keen sighted kept saying it is still there. When the sharp eyed ones admitted the light had faded all frivolity ceased, handkerchiefs came out and there was much sniffing as we drifted without word to our cabins. The next stop was New York”
