Martin from Coast guard crosses

Crows Head Crossing

Crows Head Crossing, re-enacting the crossing of the 60’s that Tadhg Roger O’Sullivan used to do to put sheep on to graze the 8 acres of grass on the island at the end of Crows head. The Lehanmore Community Centre had the idea to commemorate the crossing and contacted Kerry Mountain rescue team to see if they would like to help. They in turn asked the Castletownbere Coast Guard and RNLI to come along and make it a joint effort. The Kerry Mountain Rescue team did a great job setting up the “cables” and four or five people were taken across and back again. A large crowd turned up to watch and fun was had by all. The evening talk in the Community centre was very entertaining. I would just like to say thanks to all concerned and especially Lehanomre Community Centre and its team who pushed it on.

Swimming Dursey Sound

Swimming Dursey Sound on the last day of the Allihies festival, and a difficult day it was with a strong current making it hard for some of the swimmers. So there are three ways to get to Dursey Island, boat, Cable car and swimming. Well done to all the swimmers who took part and they had a well deserved hot whiskey afterwards. Followed by a snack at the Allihies Mine Museum Cafe.
