Come you seaweed, come swiftly to me

To bring all your goodness from within the sea

And the west coast of Clare on Ireland's great shores

Your abundance of pureness from where the surf roars


To help cleanse my skin, repair it, and soothe

And leave it just feeling so silky and smooth

To counteract aging and stave off disease

Your wonderful features can only so please...

With “Care from County Clare,” you'll have healthy skin in no time, aglow with vibrancy and life, and looking and feeling younger. It's the finest of ways to clean and rejuvenate your skin!

1965.5.1 .504 Transport of seaweed Aran Isles "The wet seaweed is carried beyond reach of the high tide by women who wear a dried goatsking [sic] on their backs over their clothes to protect their bodies from the wet; but their lower and upper garments are saturated. Seaweed is used as a fertiliser and also for burning into kelp which has a high iodine content"  From: Mason, Thomas H. 1937. The Islands of Ireland: Their Scenery, People, Life and Antiquities. New York: C. Scribners̓ Sons; London: B. T. Batsford.  Said to be Jimmy's great-great-great grandmother (but I think there might be an extra 'great' or two in that claim).
