16th & 17th May
John Hewitt School
John Hewitt was born in Belfast on 28th October 1907. His love of the Glens of Antrim inspired him to write ‘The Day of the Corncrake:Poems of the Nine Glens’ in 1969. He visited the Glens often and there is a stone cairn in memory of him beside Ossian’s Grave in Glenaan. The cairn is a 15 minute walk from Tavnaghoney Cottages and the views are beautiful.
