Re: Re: The Best Place to Live in Ireland
Ahh the begrudgery 🙂
I am always struck by the the desirability of planned towns and villages as places to live and visit over their, shall we say, more spontaneous Celtic cousins..those straids etc celebrated by the Irish Rural Dwellers Association as representing a distinctive building tradition stretching back to Fionn MacCumhaill. The perfect example for me is Valentia island in Co Kerry with its lovely planned village of Knightstown and its rather chaotic neighbour Chapeltown.
Well done to Westport though. It is a lovely place and it puts a great deal of time and effort into building itself up. As we know so well in Dublin, its not just about planning…maintaining is more than half the battle.
