Loved seeing the statue from The Quiet Man. I never realized this is where the movie was filmed. The town & scenery are so much more beautiful in real life. I would go back tomorrow.

It's an interesting statue to stop and see. We were lucky that there were bagpipers having an impromptu concert when we were there.
