    For all those literary types out there a detour through Drumcliff will take you to the alleged resting place of William Butler Yeats. I say 'alleged' as apparently there is some doubt as to the authenticity of the bones but then I read that somewhere on the internet so it could be a load of baloney. If you're short of time or whatever else you can just look at the photo....

    William Butler Yeats, 1865 - 1939
