Ryan’s Daughter, filmed by David Lean in 1968-9, was shot in part on the Ring of Kerry and in part on the nearby Dingle Peninsula. Several scenes were filmed at the lovely and very long beach at Inch. The film was a great boon to tourism in southwest Ireland.
As Laetitia and her group walked that beach, she overheard a conversation between two teenage girls that later became the limerick of the day.
Sighed a wistful teenager from Inch,
“T’would be awesome to marry the Grinch,”
But the thought of green kids
To her plan put the skids
And she thought James would do in a pinch.
