Garnish GAA Win Cup

Garnish GAA Win Cup at Adrigole today Sunday 31st of August. A wet and windy day for the Beara final on a wet pitch. The lads did very well though after an inspiring team talk by the Manager Finbarr Harrington. At half time they were 2 – 1 up but it should have been more. I guess they had another team talk and were told to pull their fingers out. The final score was 8 – 2 I believe but no one was really watching the points at the end. More so having celebrations in the rain on the pitch. Well done Garnish.

Flying Beara Peninsula

Flying Beara Peninsula is a guest post from Pete who had the chance to fly around the Beara Peninsula with Ted. All photos were taken and owned by Pete. So a set of words from Pete with help from his PR man Mick.

I’d never been in a small plane before, but, reassured by the pilot’s uniform and knowing that Ted would be doing the flying, I settled down in the back seat of the Cessna 172 “Echo Oscar Romeo”. Before we took off, I texted my next of kin and others that we would be flying over Allihies at 14h08 and to be ready to wave from the ground. I never thought Ireland could look like this: apart from the obvious shades of green, the blues, the magentas, turquoise… were an unexpected delight. Coming over Goula¬† was very bumpy, but it was interesting to fly over somewhere that was so familiar and yet see it in such an unaccustomed way. I was aware that there were people on the ground who were waiting for us to fly over them. My 5-year-old daughter swore that she saw me hanging out of the plane waving at her; several others, more realistically, waved at us as we passed over them. I would just like to say thanks to all the specks on the land who waved at us, it was a heart warming moment from up above. Flyining .Beara Peninsula is a fantastic thing to do, you just need to find your own Ted.

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.
