The Quiet Man Bridge

This was an afterthought for the bus driver. He wanted us to see this bridge so he ended up backing the big tour bus down this very narrow lane…..as long as you did not look down as he was doing this you were ok. We were glad he did becasue at the end of this lane was this B&B and we had tea and scones and walked around the beautiful garden that was there…..Cong, County Mayo

The Quiet Man is a 1952 American romantic drama film directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, Victor McLaglen and Barry Fitzgerald. It was based on a 1933 Saturday Evening Post short story by Maurice Walsh. The film is notable for its lush photography of the Irish countryside and the long, climactic, semi-comic fist fight between Wayne and McLaglen.
