Irish Show Folk & Weird Celtic Fox

The Irish Times is reporting today that the Irish producers of Riverdance and the forthcoming Pirate Queen (the story of Grace O'Malley, or Granuaile), Moya Doherty and her husband John McColgan, have bought themselves an American holiday home for $25 million on Martha's Vineyard.

Summer visitors to the island reportedly include movie star Michael J Fox, and film director Spike Lee. Weirdly, both non-Irish celebrities share names with Irish islands!

Even more weird is that Spike Island is situated where the River Lee flows into Cork Harbour, and Kerry's Skellig Michael is protected by a Gaelic-singing mythical celtic Fox that circles the rock in a traditional Namhóg - a fishing boat with tarred canvas on a wooden frame. Listen! I think I can hear Enya.
