THE clock will be turned back next weekend when scenes from the iconic movie 'The Quiet Man' are recreated in Cong, Co Mayo.
Directed by John Ford, 'The Quiet Man' was shot mostly in Cong and Connemara, and the Cong Festival each year marks the village's association with the movie.
Next Sunday, the statue, cast by sculptor Mark Rode, will be unveiled. It will be located close to the Royal Abbey in Cong.
Over the weekend, location tours will take in Castletown Railway Station, The Quiet Man Bridge, as well as a visit to The White O' Morn Cottage site.
