Signpost magnet with the name of Connemara village Rosmuc. Rosmuc is a village in the Conamara Gaeltacht of County Galway, Ireland. It lies halfway between the town of Clifden and the city of Galway. Irish is the predominant spoken language in the area.
The area has been home to a number of literary figures, including Irish revolutionary and language activist Patrick Pearse, who had a summer residence there in the early 1900s and set several of his short stories in the area. Pearse was based in his Rosmuc cottage when he wrote the graveside oration, “Ireland unfree shall never be at peace”, given at the funeral of Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa in 1915.
Another local writer was Pádraic Ó Conaire, who wrote 26 books, 473 stories, 237 essays and 6 plays partly set in the region. These included M’asal Beag Dubh (My Little Black Donkey) and the novella Deoraíocht (Exile).
A beautiful souvenir to remind you of this lovely Connemara village.
