      Following a recent trip to Ireland, I made ​​this video about this beautiful country.
      Towards the middle, you will see images of CONG.
      My hope to meet Maureen O'Hara was destroyed because she was in his personal problems with her family ...

      We were there in Ireland in 2007. We enjoyed the trip very much.
      I am supposed to be a little bit Irish,but when I visited there, I was
      100% Irish.
      When someone posted video of Cong, the Quiet Man being made,on this site months ago
      with the Quiet man music playing in the background, I wanted to return
      so bad.
      My wife has physical problems and we haven't been able to go. When
      she gets healed we will try to return and visit the Quiet Man places,
      like we did before.
      You guys are fortunate to live so close, go and tell us here,what you saw.Post a few pictures.
      I just thank God that John Ford made that beautiful movie the Quiet Man.
      I love the Irish customs in it and all the native habits and talk. It was
      very enjoyable.
      Understand I wouldn't want to live these custom's, but it was beautiful to watch.


      Also west of Shannon, I believe at Foynes, there is a small Seaplane Museum. We visited it and enjoyed it.
      Charles Blair, Maureen's pilot husband, left there on a flight and set a seaplane flying record.
      God continue to bless Maureen and give her good health.
      I saw "Spencer's Mountain" recently, and Maureen was at her most beautiful there. It was done in 1964, so she was 44.

      I am watching Romy's fine movie and just watched past the Cong part. Minutes 6:45 to approx. 9:00
      Excellent, beautiful, thank you. I liked how you put in a little movie and them showed the same scene today.

      My wife took me to Cong for my 60th birthday and we did all the locations except one which was no longer there that was the cottage in the background of one of the scenes you could see smoke coming out of the chimney. I took photographs of all the locations and they are now on my first site to the Duke the link is called The Quiet Man Trail and you might already know that Cohan's is now a pub.

      Indeed, when we went in June, the cottage was forbidden to visit by a fence. This is a ban that is mainly due to that the "visitors" steal, little by little, a stone here, a stone there, destroying the heritage ... now wait until that its restoration is effective.

      How sad this is! but also how stupid of them all!
      What is the point of boasting we are the best
      and charging outrageous prices,
      and then going 'bust' in the process.??
      Obviously in this day and age, the business plan was wrong,
      to not only lose money trading, but also in the process
      to halve it's market value and lose the investor €25m !

      Hi Bryn,

      See you have been a member a while but must have taken a sabbatical, LOL. Anyway, nice to "meet you". I have been a member for about 5 months now. Just got finished with the Group Watch. If you check out Hatari, there are 18 pages on it.....lots of screen catches and discussions about parts of the movie, etc. Hope you will join the next one. It will be a Western. We are waiting now to see what it will be.
      Yes, I should SAY, you should make the journey. Wow, I would love to see it all. Well, welcome back and HAGO, Keith (the old lady)....Dooley calls me LadyHawk, LOL!

      Here is one of the photo of my 1989's trip to Ireland. Few days in Cong, looking for all the place of The quiet Man.
      I was there, I think, just in time to see this beautiful places before the coming of the blessings of civilization... I was there again in 1995 and I see too many gift shops for tourists...
