Follow the Yellow Brick Road

John O’Mahony is at last returned to his people. All over the County Mayo, in that physical place that is confined by the broad Atlantic to the West, Sligo and Roscommon to the East and Galway to the South, and the spiritual place where Deoraíocht Mhaigh Eo have made their homes far from the land of shamrock and heather, Mayo men and women are throwing back their shoulders, straightening their backs and looking at the world with brighter eyes. Johnno is back, at last.

So great is the event, in fact, that your correspondent, An Spailpín Fánach, has ascended from the airy planes of cyberspace to return once more to the World of Man. As part of the full coverage of the Ascension in the Mayo News, the greatest newspaper in the recorded history of humanity, there are 700 words from myself on what Johnno’s return may hold for the County Mayo. Click here, as they say, for further details. Maigh Eo abú.
