Valentia Island Lighthouse, Co, Kerry

If you get a chance to visit Valentia Island, follow the road north from Knightstown to the lighthouse at Cromwell Point, especially on a stormy day to watch the big waves crashing onto the rocks at the lighthouse.

I have fished all my life on Lough Currane, fishing connects you to the raw beauty of the natural world in all its magnificence, it also teaches you patience and acceptance, all fishermen are equal in the pursuit of such virtues and the hope that a fish will rise. There is never an hour lost or a day wasted for no moment is the same in the every changing light and mood of the lake.

My favourite song is ‘Man in the Mirror’ by Michael Jackson because the song tells me that making a difference in the world has to start with me.’

I Am Kerry

I am Kerry like my mother before me
And my mother’s mother and her man
Now I sit on an office stool remembering
And the memory of them like a fan
Soothes the embers into flame.
I am Kerry and proud of my name……….

I Am Kerry – Poem by Sigerson Clifford
