St John’s Eve bonfire night is a tradition that is kept on the 23 June along the western seaboard of Ireland. Years ago, we used to climb the mountain on the evening of the 23rd of June and watch out for the tell-tale smoke rising from bonfires along the coast stretching from north Mayo all the way to Donegal. It connects communities in a very ancient way. Although the Covid lockdown in June 2020 kept everyone in their own place, the smoke rising at sunset connected communities again.
