“You build a hard shell and then you die”

 
A walk along Sandymount beach
 This is what Eoghan said to me as we strolled along Sandymount beach on Sunday. He wasn’t trying to be dark and morbid, he was simply describing the average life of a mussel. “There’s a lot more to it than that, of course,” he explained, as he showed me where the mussel had once been stuck to the inside of the shell. “But for the sake of brevity, that pretty much sums it up.”
