Cycle around the Ring of Beara

Cycle around the Ring of Beara, it has to be one of the best cycling routes in the whole of Ireland. The roads are quiet and there is just spectacular scenery all the way. Many small villages with places to stop for food and drink. Too few to mention, so I won’t.

Follow the route as shown in the video, but of course start from any where that suits and feel free to stay around for a few days. You don’t need to sign up for a sportive to enjoy this route, indeed it is much more fun when you are on your own or just with a small group.

Cycle the Ring of Beara Peninsula, on the wildatlanticway .#beara #film It is quite possibly the nicest cycle route in Ireland… Especially when the weather is right. Any time come and do it, you don't need a sportive to sign up to. Just put 50€ in your pocket and cycle around, get lunch in any one of many bars or restaurants.

Nadette Charlet Time Lapse Illustration

Nadette Charlet Time Lapse Illustration of Twomey’s Ivy Bar in Castletownbere, on the Beara Peninsula. The illustration took a full day to do so lots of looking over her shoulder and filming. Mostly speeded up and cut it all down to just under 2 minutes.

Blind Bus 32 Cataract Story

Thanks again to Michael Collins, eye number two sorted out in Belfast. It is a long trip I left at six AM on Friday morning, Michael Collins himself picked me up from Bantry and drove me via Clonakilty for more patients and then on to Cork. I got home last night at midnight after John Collins picking us up again and driving me back to Bantry. A mighty effort.

Delighted to say, I now have two eyes working as they should.
Thanks again.

A trip up to Belfast for up to 14 people each time. To have cataracts removed. It is a fairly simple procedure. However due to chronic problems the HSE are having due mainly to mismanagement by consecutive FG and FF parties people are having to do a 40 hour round trip to a private hospital in Belfast. They do a great job, and I wonder if they can do it there and make money out of it, why can’t it be done here…
Thanks to Michael Collins for County Cork and the Healy Rae’s for Kerry many people have now had the operation without having to wait years…

Blind Bus 32 Cataract Story

Before, unable to see detail and everything clouded over.

After operation can see much more detail and definition.

My personal view on elections in Ireland, is things need to change, local or national any time a vote is given to FG or FF we are just voting for the mess to continue. It is my view you don’t need to agree with me.

If you need your own film, please do get in touch.
