Tourism on land

Brendan Creek. A gloomy and an inhospitable place despite its beauty. There used to be around 90 curraghs in 1940. Up until 1960, each of these boats, containing 5 fishing nets and manned by 3 men would leave at dawn to go mackerel fishing as far as 7 miles away from the Creek.They managed to take between 2000 and 3000 fish. Those men who stayed on land (cf first picture) would wait there for the return of their friends. This is quite reminiscent of "The Man of Aran" from Robert Flaherty.
