We were on a drive that was going to take two hours,,I felt great excitement.A wee adventure in the wilds of Connemara.We were on the way to Kylemore Abbey.In my head as interesting as it souned I personally was more interested in the country side.Before setting off I was warned by the boss not to be stopping every time the landscape changed.Ireland only needs a bend in the road a bit of a hill but then thats me decribing most parts of Europe.Any way tipping along about twenty over the speed limit I floored the brakes much to my passengers disgust.I had seen a sign,,Quite Man,,where have I heard that before,,I didnt stop due to the grumbles from the back.So we reached the compulsary 20 above limit and set off for the abbey.We got there had a wander and a coffee with a local made brown bread and a chunk of ham,,,yum,,.The girls dissappeared and I was left day dreaming,,,and out of the daze my ears began to tune into an Italian conversation,,,somthing,somthing Quite Man,,why was that trying desperatly to ring a bell in my poor aul brain.
BANG,,or ring ring,,John Bloody Wayne,,he was in the film Quite Man,,,ah the bridge where he had a fight with a bloke over a woman,,Thats waht the sign siad,,Bridge of The Quite Man.So when the girls arrived back I was grinning," I want to take a detour on the way back,,,grumbles,,
Anyway John Wayne with Maureen O Hara were in the Film and here was where the famous fight took place,,well can you blame me,I am not often down that way,lol
Well I dont know how many times I was John Wayne growing up killing all those meany Indians,,.So here's one for my hero.
"Whisper's of a Quite Man"

Sorry for the long winded story,,

THANKS AS ALWAYS FOR YOUR TIME AND INTEREST IN WHAT I HAVE SEEN

I remember the film well - I see what you mean Aidan - a little dark perhaps but a lovely scene - (where were the dogs? Jumping in the river I expect and having a good sniff and play)

Absolutely first class, the film was top notch and Victor MacGlaglen was the man who fought John Wayne, interestingly John Wayne became a movie star when one day Raoul Walsh discovered him, what was he doing? carrying out some furniture to a truck
