image preview

During her first visit to Ireland while walking the road from Oranmore to Loughrea, Aesnath Nicholson, a lone witness to the growing desperation of the poor as successive years of the Great Famine took its frightening toll, stopped to rest her blistered feet.

Home from home at The Connemara Sands

Ballyconneely is a small village just south of Clifden, the capital of Connemara, at the entry point to the Errismore Peninsula – an ideal place from which to explore the most tranquil, unspoilt, and interesting landscape to be found anywhere in our little country. Kathy McCallion spent much of her childhood here before relocating to New York City where she met her husband, Dean Gibson. After moving back to Ireland to expand their family, Ballyconneely drew them back home, an ideal destination for both family life and work. It's still early days for the first-time hoteliers, who are making their mark on the area after 16 years in the States, bringing new life to the former Mannin Bay Hotel in Ballyconneely after it had been closed for six years.

image preview

AT FIRST glance, Miss Emily by Nuala O’Connor - aka Nuala Ni Chonchúir - is a relatively simple tale of a growing relationship, not to say friendship, between two women, one the daughter of a working class Irish family who decides America offers her a better future than the humdrum poverty stricken life in late 19th century Dublin, and the other a somewhat withdrawn daughter of a middle class New England family, in whose house the Irishwoman finds a job as a housekeeper.
