Heidi visits Allihies

Heidi visits Allihies for a second time this year, a great visit with the kids and Sam with an evening stroll to Balydonegan beach followed by supper and a movie. Next day spent at Tranfeerla strand, canoeing, rock sculpture making and of course swimming. Finished off with a small bit of pony riding for the kids on Salvador.

Sarah Walker Gallery

Sarah Walker Gallery had a great evening for Ireland’s Culture night last night. A solo exhibition by Mary Callaghan.

“Crow Head” An investigation¬†cliffs, birds & turf thuiles.

Followed by the West Cork Ukulele Orchestra doing a set of music. Mary Callaghan also features as one of the members of the band. She had her evenings work cut out for her. I did not take any pictures of her fantastic work. Instead I bought one…

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.
