Street scene in Cong, Co. Mayo showing Quiet Man location

JS: You may recognize this street from that Hollywood movie, where the actors traded blows in a epic duel to the edge of town, only to come back friends.

Ed: Typical of rural modern Ireland, I like the brightly-painted houses and the tranquil setting. Note the Sky TV dish - terrestrial reception in this part of the world would not be great and for many, Sky is the best option.
