He was just half-way up O'Brien's hill when suddenly the little ass stopped and poor Jack did not know what to do.

There was a beautiful hotel situated about 100 yards from Lahinch, and it was burned to the ground on the month of March 1934. During the summer people used to come from all parts of the world to see this beautiful building. This hotel was called The Golf Links Hotel.
This hotel was noted for its view. If a person went to any window there was some lovely sight to be seen. If you looked to the North you could see the beautiful Cliffs of Moher, to the South Mt. Callan, to the West the beatiful Atlantic, and to the East the lovely little town of Ennistymon.
