Overview

"Oh, Aranmore! loved Aranmore,
How oft I dream of thee, And of those days when by thy shore
I wandered young and free; Full many a path I've tried since then,
Through pleasure's flowery maze, But ne'er could find the bliss again
I felt in those sweet days."
Thomas Moore.
POPE GREGORY THE GREAT The south isles of Aran, which shelter the Galway bay from the heavy swell of the Atlantic, are Inishmore, the large island, nine miles in length; Inishmaan, the middle island, two and a half miles in length; Inisheer, the lesser, two miles in length; Straw Island, upon which the lighthouse stands, and the Brannock Rocks or islands, all forming that group which to the west bounds the Galway bay, and the ancient jurisdiction of the Admiral of Galway.
