Patrick Kavanagh Country mentioned in ‘Irish Bucket List’

IMG_8584Patrick Kavanagh Country mentioned in ‘The Irish Bucket List: 30 things to do in Ireland before you die’ compiled by the Irish Independent.

“You’ve heard of Yeats Country. You know Joyce’s Dublin. Seamus Heaney is soon to get his own visitor centre in Bellaghy. So why, oh why, is the gorgeously intimate landscape of Patrick Kavanagh’s life and poetry so off-radar? Within a 13.5km walk, cycle or drive from the heritage centre in Inniskeen, you’ll find the poet’s grave (a modest wooden cross), the family homestead, Billy Brennan’s Barn and Inniskeen Road, where the bicycles went by in twos and threes on that eponymous July evening. Monaghan has its magic, all right” – Pól Ó Conghaile
