24 years ago I backpacked up the west coast of Ireland. I remember reaching Clifden after many days of solitary walking through Connemara. It was full of life ( it was late July), and felt very welcoming to me. I stayed for a whole week before walking on toward Cleggan.
Revisiting Clifden to make photographs for this kit, brought back a lot of memories to me. I even incorporated some of the drawings I did back in 1993.
I love Clifden post office - it was the first building I drew. Lowry's and Conn O'Mara's shop form a colourful pair. Moran's and Griffin's seemed iconic neighbours... and EJ Kings is at the centre of it all. Of course, there are many more great facades... but this is all for the first edition of Tiny Clifden.
