ver the June bank holiday, I was out at Rosses Point in Sligo and took a walk to Deadman’s Point.  I wanted to see the old River Pilot Watch-house, this old ruin of a cottage recently appeared on the Bob Geldof documentary called “A Fanatic Heart”, which was commissioned by RTE for their reflecting the rising series.  I knew the Yeats family had an old summer house at Rosses Point, but I wasn’t aware of the exact location and I didn’t know about the Yeats connection to the River Pilot’s old Watch-house.  Bob Geldof can be controversial and he’s no shrinking violet and while I didn’t agree with everything he said in the documentary, it was good to get another viewpoint.  I found the documentary very interesting and it was great to see some of the places in Sligo that inspired William Butler Yeats.
