A Letter from Ireland:

Come on “back the road” to ….. Paris …… Paris, Heir Island that is.


Paris Heir Island

Have you ever heard the phrase “Backwoods” or “back the road” (maybe you live in the “backwoods”?). This is typically from the Irish “thiar an bóthar leat” – which means “west on the road”, but in Irish thiar (pronounced “hear”) can mean west or back and so “back the road” actually means “west on the road” if you catch my meaning

And here we have a nice boreen for a stroll of an evening in the Paris of West Cork.
