Maureen O’Hara and The Quiet Man

Everyone’s favorite red-headed Irish actress – Maureen O’Hara, is due in Cong Co Mayo this weekend to celebrate the 60th anniversary of John Ford’s irrepressible, hugely enjoyable, over the top depiction of the land of his forefathers – The Quiet Man.

The 91 year old actress will be staying in the same hotel – Ashford Castle as she did when herself and John Wayne were chasing each other around the fields, throwing pottery at each other and generally creating one of the most enjoyable screen romances in Hollywood history.

If you are interested in The Quiet Man, John Wayne, Ford and O’Hara, you can read all about it in my new book FOR THE LOVE OF BEING IRISH. Below is just one page / one limerick from this A-Z of Ireland that will have you laughing and learning about Ireland, its people and its history.
