Seriously, you don't.

If I'm awaiting something, I'm not sure whether I actually want to wait for it incase I'm disappointed, or I have long since forgotten about it, that it would be nice to see something different in it, in a sense. Like films based on books, I've forgotten about the books, so I can't wait to see what they come up with in the film, and it gets me thinking about how wondeful the book was.

I know, I'm crazy :roll:

Actually, the name 'Clannad' emerged as a shortened version of "Clann As Dobhair", which means 'a family from Dore'. And let me recommend the book to you as well. It's a great read! :D

Killiney you should also read Moya's book Landscapes Of God's Peace if you have not already read it. Check out this link: http://www.amazon.com/God-Peace-Maire-B ... 471&sr=1-2

It's the same thing - Gweedore and Dore, sometimes people just say 'dore' instead. It's over quite a large area.

I knew that Gweedore was really spread out, but I didn't think it covered a huge area though
