An answer and a question

Dan Barry asks, in the New York Times Travel section --

Does the ‘Real’ Ireland Still Exist?

His answer: Yes.

The follow-up question, not asked: he only looked for it in Galway and Mayo. What does that tell us about the existence of a real Ireland in the rest of the country? After all, even 100 years ago, Synge had to go to Galway and Mayo to find it.
