Great Blasket is an isolated island community off the Kerry Coast of Ireland with a remarkable legacy of literary achievements. The story of its people is one of self-reliance, rich community, fierce connection to land and sea, the creative gifts of storytelling and music, and faith-filled resilience. How wonderful to translate their story of fortitude and rich culture in a challenging environment to our own lives today.
GROUP LEADER: Ellen Duzak is a retired Professor of Psychology at Becker College. She has loved the magic of Great Blasket Island since her first trip to Ireland. Stepping on the Island’s rocky shores touched her Celtic spirit and has inspired her for many years.
