Beckett and the lure of Lough Erne

The Irish actor Adrian Dunbar wrote an article for The Observer yesterday that was headlined (in the print version) “Beckett and me”. It was, though, less a piece about staging drama and more a hymn to Dunbar’s home town of Enniskillen – where Beckett spent his school years – and to the watery hinterland of County Fermanagh: “The saying goes that ‘Half the year Lough Erne is in Fermanagh, the other half of the year Fermanagh is in Lough Erne.’ Fermanagh people love these words as they explain exactly the relationship we have with water; sweet water, deep water. We are the boys and girls of the lough.”
