Video of Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna.

Yep, a posting about Co.Clare again.
Of Christy Moore and matchmaking fame, Lisdoonvarna is nice old place. The central square is tidy enough with sculptures of musicians and dancers, frozen in mid-session.
The best pub is "The Roadside" a little way off the square and home to the "Burren Tolkien Society".
Yes, you read that right.
Apparently, Tolkien got the idea for the name Gollum from Pollnagollum cave.
