Watercolour of Inis Oírr beach and graveyard by John P. Salmen from Maryland, USA.

Inis Oírr is fantastically beautiful, and the images continue to resonate in my mind’s eye. It feels like the survival struggle of all the people on the island, for all those years has imbued the place with significance and importance that somehow comes through, visually.
