The Quiet Man : John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara Statue in Cong, County Mayo, Ireland
The Quiet Man is one of my favorite films – and definitely my favorite John Wayne film. Growing up in Iowa (where I still live) less than an hour from the birthplace of ‘The Duke', John Wayne's legend is larger than life. The new John Wayne Birthplace Museum opens this weekend, just behind the humble house where he was born. This statue stands on a street corner in Cong, County Mayo, not far from many of the locations used for The Quiet Man and Ashford Castle.
