I just found some new information on this while browsing through the Irish Independent archives

In 1967, John Lennon purchased Dorinish Island, an inhabited lump in Clew Bay, Co Mayo. He paid £1,700 and would retreat there with his wife Cynthia when the pressure of life as a Beatle grew too much. He stopped visiting after their divorce and Dorinish felt into disuse.

In 1970, Lennon invited 'King of the Hippies' Sid Rawle to set up a commune and Rawle and 25 followers duly moved in. In 1972, part of their camp burned down and they quit Dorinish. Following Lennon's death in 1980, Yoko Ono sold the island for £30,000, donating the proceeds to an orphanage.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
