Cong



Cong, I discovered, is a village straddling the borders of County Galway and County Mayo in Ireland and is . . .




located on an island formed by a number of streams surrounding it on all sides. It's also where The Quiet Man was filmed in 1951, starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara, although I confess I've never seen the movie. Have you?

  3. I have heard of that film but never seen it. Love the name of the village. And the aubretia (I think it is!) on the stone wall.

  5. I've seen enough of the movie to despise it. :)

    Not a fan of the Duke. Lovely area though!

  7. Never saw the movie but saw the statue. Went on a St. Stephen's Day heritage walk there a couple of years ago.
