I sometimes see Ed around Skib, in Field's Café maybe. Lost the sight of one eye and then the other in different ways when a child in England. Moved here in the late 60s/early 70s and settled on Cape Clear island, which is a few miles off the coast at Baltimore. He started up a goat farm and still runs it, their speciality being goat's milk ice-cream. I've walked around Ed's land on Cape, mostly gorse and scraggy rock and fairly vertical, as you might expect on a small stony island. I can't imagine negotiating it unsighted. He's also an activist in many causes and even stood for election in local elections a year or two ago. Didn't win, but I guess he likes a challenge.
