Inis Mór

Aran Islands Dun Aengus

The good people of Inishmore cordially invite you to watch them paint the town red -- a vivid, sticky red that comes, as the phrase goes, straight from the heart. Gore and guts will be served in generous portions by some of the stupidest characters ever to cross a stage. So please turn off your political correctness monitor along with your cell phone.
