art Donlan's Retreat was inspired by Dunguaire Castle, Kinvara, County Galway, one of many castles that dot the landscapes of rural Ireland, while traveling with friends (August 1996).

Donlan's Retreat

In a land far away -- A castle reflects the fading light of day
Here the Donlans came to stay -- To have fun, to laugh and play
(And so did the Wades, Peacocks and the Terrys) -- They came by plane, train and ferries
They came to paint, or read a book -- Or give the sunsets a lingering look
Or peddle about on their trusty bikes -- Or go on dream-perfect, bird spotting hikes
And Donlan is having his best game of all -- With a sweet little, white bouncing ball
