Beara Charity Cycle 2016 has been announced for the 16th of July. What makes the Beara Charity Cycle so great is that it is organised fully by volunteers and is a non profit event, all of the money made by the participants paying their 50€ to take part goes to four local charities.
This is the sixth year that the event is being held and over the years this event has succeeded in raising 65000€ for local charities. The participants always have a great time and the routes are spectacular.
Watch a short video here of route two which shows some of the spectacular scenery.

Cork Ladies Senior Football Team visit Allihies and Aine Terry O’Sullivan, the ALL IRELAND WINNERS 2015. A great night was had in the hall. A short film of the arrival and some of the scenes in the hall. Then Aine did a speech followed by the Cork Ladies Team Captain. The team had a great welcome to the Beara Peninsula with fires welcoming them along the way.

Lehanmore Pantomime Una and Her Technicolour Guna is all over after four sold out shows. The Panto was written jointly by Bill Griffin and Carina Mc Nally. As they would say themselves, by the time the show goes on stage a lot of extra material has been added. This makes for a hilarious experience with lines being changed each night depending who is in the audience and what is in the news that week.
