Gerard Kennedy, the owner of the Moorings Guesthouse in Portmagee, and an accomplished Irish folk singer, sings the opening lyric of the song "Come to the Bower" to give some presence to the role of the Wild Atlantic on the country.
Will you come to the bower o'er the free boundless ocean
Where the stupendous waves roll in thundering motion
Where the mermaids are seen and the fierce tempest gathers
To loved Erin the green, the dear land of our fathers
Will you come, will you, will you, will you come to the bower?
