One might also say that the plantation is at the center of Irish I think of as culture today, whic h, in a slightly diff erent register , the real/really is to say colonizer and colonized.

What’ s of interest to me is the yield to deep connection between the two, the way that the y hemispheres, come together in a Gordian knot. I’m a short walk down this road, around twenty where wave years spent trying to get clear of the fog of nation- meetings and alism into whic h I was born—the stuff that we all receive in one form or another .
