Synge’s Cottage

John Millington Synge was one of the great Irish playwrights at the turn of the 20th century.  After suffering his first attack of Hodgkin’s disease in 1897, he spent his summers on the Aran Islands (Inis Meáin), publishing his book-length journal, The Aran Islands, in 1907.

I’ve referred to my visit to Inis Meáin as “when we got there, no one was home.”  The day we visited the only people I remember seeing was a group of children, two men in a store the size of my living room, a lady, and a man walking with a donkey.  I think I will offer that image next week.
