I envy Alyssas beautiful summer on Inis Mor
It’s the first week of July and despite having mild temperatures and sporadic sunshine here on Inis Mor, many visitors are filling the roads and exploring the island by walking, bicycling, pony & trap, or on guided bus tours.
Summer homes are filled with the familiar faces of islanders who, often following work opportunities, have moved their primary residence to the mainland. Many are here with their families, an annual ritual organized around the various children’s camps offered, while others are here for family festivities that are planned around the fishermen’s schedules. Dozens more come just because they still, and always will, consider the island their home, where their youth was spent and their heart still is.
