Five years ago Elizabeth Rose Murray (http://ermurray.com/) wandered into Schull and fell in love, she fell in love with the sea, the peace and quiet, the lovely sense of community, and then, she fell in love with a man! Now Schull is where she calls home, something she has never done anywhere else. She has just published her first book – The Book of Learning – which was launched on Saturday 26th September in our very own Whyte Books, and she has already started on her next two!

  1. Her favourite view is from Sailor’s Hill and the only music she would like would be the sounds around her, the birds, the sea, the weather.
  2. She wishes she had taken up the piano earlier – every winter she tries to learn more than 3 pieces but over the summer she forgets them and has to start all over again.
  3. Best night out? Well most definitely sometime during the Fastnet Short Film Festival when you get to watch great films in intimate surroundings
  4. When she was five she wanted to be Japanese.
  5. Her favourite pizza is pepperoni with extra jalapeno’s and she is a Murphy’s drinker.
  6. What she wishes she had but doesn’t already possess? Nothing – “right now my life is pretty perfect.”

What is it about Schull and the Mizen that attracts people here? Who are the people who populate this quirky little village on the edge of Europe? Why do they come? How do they find us? What do they DO?

Here they tell their stories, responding to the same questions they all have very different answers.
