International Talk Like A Pirate Day

    The International Talk Like a Pirate Day

    The day is always on the 19th of September every year and is celebrated all around the world. Sailor’s Bar Clare Island is the only bar in Ireland celebrating the day and we are doing so (on Saturday, September 16th) in celebration of our home grown pirate, Grace O Malley (Granuaile).

    Granuaile was a Fearless leader by land and by sea, political pragmatist and tactician, rebel, pirate and matriarch, the ’most notorious woman in all the coasts of Ireland’ GRACE O’MALLEY challenges and manipulates the turbulent politics of the 16th century. Breaching boundaries of gender imbalance and bias, she re-wrote the rules to become one of the world’s first documented feminist trail-blazers. (Ann Chambers)
