“From west to east the ocean is wide before you. …from the far blue Fastnet Rock, looking like an anchored battleship, on the west, to the long and slender arm of Galley Head, with its white light-house, floating like a seagull on the rim of the horizon. Between these points, among those heavenly blues and greens and purples, that change and glow and melt into each other in ecstasies of passionate colour, history has been made, and unforgettable things have happened.”

Edith Somerville, Irish Memories
