Most Tranquil Place in Ireland
We are on a quest! We're going to try to find the most tranquil place in Ireland, and we need your help!
Now, tranquillity is a subjective term. A tranquil place is somewhere that is peaceful, restful and soothing, rather than somewhere that enjoys a complete absence of sound!
Dictionaries differ in how they define tranquillity, but I particularly like this one, from Merriam-Webster. "Tranquil: Free from agitation of mind or spirit."
Given the nature of this programme and calling on our knowledge of our various contributors, we imagine tranquillity would be measured by how far removed you are from human interference!' How surrounded you are by pure, natural sound ...... flowing water, a light breeze, and birdsong in the distance, maybe.
Okay, it's subjective. But nonetheless, we are embarking on this quest. And apart from needing your assistance, we've enlisted some professional help.
Diarmuid Keaney runs a company called ICAN Acoustics, and he is an expert in Noise Control and he gives some pointers to Derek as to what constitutes tranquility.
