‘Men from all three islands, on hearing that I have mapped the area, have asked me about what they call An Garraí Gabhann’. #TimRobinson #Aran #Árainn #TheBurren. A paragraph I keep going back to from Robinson’s masterly ‘Stones of Aran’. pic.twitter.com/E4Al4Q12Hu

Tim Robinson, mightiest of place writers, has died of coronavirus, just two weeks after his wife Mairead. Viewing the distant bulk of the Burren on my meagre 2km circuit earlier I was thinking it was a moment for a rereading of his books. More reason now. https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/books/acclaimed-connemara-writer-tim-robinson-dies-at-85-from-coronavirus-1.4220154 …
A book I had in my pocket right across Ireland in the 90s. Still with a Dublin Bus ticket and a leaflet from the Aran. A beautiful book ( and photograph) by Synge -and one of the most complete introductions to any book, by Tim Robinson – the world is a poorer place without him. pic.twitter.com/SVn1twVAOE
