Baile Tréigthe ~~ The Deserted Village

Oileán Gabhla --Gola Island ,Co. Donegal,Irl.

 

But now the sounds of population fail,

No cheerful murmurs fluctuate in the gale,

No busy steps the grass-grown footway tread,

For all the bloomy flush of life is fled.

 

Quotation from The Deserted Village

by Oliver Goldsmith.
