Allihies Inspireswhat a weekend

I don't suppose that this video will get watched very much at over 16 minutes long. It is a film for posterity of all the great things that happened in Allihies over the weekend. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed listening to poetry and readings of stories. Not surpised at all by the standard of work from Sami Switch and his friends and deligthed at the Music for Dogs theatre that capped it all off. Well done to all involved. Deirdre Collins what a woman for one woman.I can't remember all in the film but, amongst others:Carina McNally 0 SecondsAnita Brohail 39 SecondsTim Goulding 1:57 SecondsRachel Parry 3:43 SecondsTheo Dorgan 4:43 SecondsPaula Meehan 5:45 SecondsTony Curtis 6:38 SecondsSheena Dempsey 8:04 SecondsJane Landry 8:04 SecondsTadhg O'Sullivan 8:53 SecondsClaire Zwaartman 9:36 SecondsDiarmuid Hickey 10:40 SecondsAnita Daly 11:16 SecondsSykoni 12:02 SecondsSami Switch 12:15 SecondsBritney 13:05 SecondsCameron Bloomfield 13;16 SecondsNadette Charlet 14:07 SecondsBill Griffin 15:09 SecondsCarol Caffrey 15:31 SecondsSorry I missed a few things, I just did this for the memories.

Seven year old climbs Carrauntoohil

Matt Houlihan a  seven year old from West Cork climbed Ireland’s highest peak Carrauntoohil on Tuesday. The mountain is 1038 meters high and he made the ascent look very easy. He was with his family Heidi, Fran and Niall, plus his godfather Mike who flew over from the UK to accompany him.

Matt’s father Iñaki died of kidney cancer five years ago and Matt wanted to do something in memory of him. So he set up a go fund me page and got sponsorship to climb the mountain.

Watch a short video of Matt’s ascent here

or facebook version, probably needs the sound on…

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018, this year was the twentieth anniversary of the festival and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Musicians came from near and far and lots of great sessions were to be seen and heard.

On the opening night Two time Polka gave a cracking gig in the Lighthouse bar, every body was up dancing within a few minutes.

Watch a video from the Friday night in the Lighthouse bar here, Two Time Polka

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

On the Saturday lot’s of things were happening, and I guess there are photos taken but that was not my job, we had some enjoyable pints out side the bars listening to a few bits of music between.

Sunday we were away bike racing, Neil got fourth…

On Monday night we went up to Jimmy’s for what has become the unofficial closing night.

and were treated to a song by Sue…

Watch a snippet of Sue’s song here, turn up the sound
