Life Preserver, Inisheer

Life preserver at the harbour of Inisheer, the smallest of the Aran islands. According to the font of all knowledge, the fishermen of the Aran islands did not bother to learn how to swim, since they did not believe they would survive any seas rough enough to swamp their fishing boats, and it would be better to drown quickly.
