Helen's Bar- Tuosist, Co Kerry


This is a painting of Helen's Bar after the Rain, Tuosist, County Kerry by Claire Bunbury. 

It's a great spot for fish and chips and a pint overlooking Kilmackillogue Harbour. Here's a little poem prompted by the painting...

Whitewash cool under fingertip

the taste of chalk on tongue

oscillating wave upon wave

squawk, grunt, wail of gull

and the sea air briny and warm-

Helen's Bar after the Rain.
