The village of Cloghane is two miles from Glen and four miles from Mullach and it's impossible to visit either place without passing through it. It's not a large village but it's position on Brandon Bay, beautiful beach and proximity to Mount Brandon, has made it very popular with hill walkers, mountaineers, anglers and visitors who just love the beautiful scenery and laid back atmosphere of the village. At nights there are good music and traditional Sean-nos singing sessions in the pubs and the people who live here are incredibly friendly, warmhearted and articulate. Kerry people have a long oral tradition and the telling of stories and anecdotes is still widespread. Have a drink and a chat with any local in a pub and I guarantee you, you will not be bored. There's one small hotel, O'Connors, but most of the local houses offer B&B as well. The photos show the local school where my mother was a pupil and the local churchyard where my grandparents, uncle, aunts and three little girl cousins (who died as babies) are buried in the family vault.
