I was putting a dinghy into the water at Ferry Point, across the harbour from the town of Youghal, on the Cork- Waterford border. It was a clear blue morning, and the sun was streaming down on fishing boats, and net sheds, and the broad blue estuary of the Blackwater, a river that even in the sensible Ireland of the 21st century is still pretty much a cosmos of its own... The walled town of Youghal was once the home of Sir Walter Raleigh, and one of Ireland's principal ports. It is still a buzzing kaleidoscope of brilliantly painted pubs.
