"Coming down from Downpatrick, stopping off at St. John's Point . . . Strangford Lough early in the morning. Drove through Shrigly taking pictures and on to Killyleagh. Stopped off for Sunday papers at the Lecale district, just before Coney Island.

"On and on, over the hill to Ardglass in the Jamjar, autumn sunshine, magnificent and all shining through . . . And all the time going to Coney Island I'm thinking, 'wouldn't it be great if it was like this all the time?' "

Van Morrison, Coney Island, Copyright 1989, by Essential Music.

"We were standing in the kingdom and by the mansion gate we stood enraptured by the silence, as the birds sang their heavenly song, in Tír Na nÓg.

"We stopped in the church of Ireland and prayed to our father, and climbed up the mountainside with fire in our hearts. And we walked all the way to Tír Na nÓg . . .

"And outside the storm was raging; outside Jerusalem. We drove in our chariots of fire, following the big sun in the west. Going up, going up, to Tír Na nÓg."

Van Morrison, Tir Na Nog, Copyright 1986 by Essential Music.
