Allihies Mines Collapse

Allihies Mines Collapse a hole appeared overnight on a field which was only being worked on recently with tractor driving all over it. This hole could swallow up a few tractors. The Allihies Mines were opened in the early 18th century. There are lots of underground passage ways in the area after extensive mining in the 19th century. For a few years Allihies was the worlds largest supplier of copper ore.

The land owners have put up warnings and all access to the private field is strictly forbidden.

Silage West Cork with Brian Manus cutting and bailing in a lovely setting at Allihies on the Beara Peninsula of West, Cork Ireland. This field is traditionally the first cut every season in Allihies, the start of the mad season…

I know I have used this music many times but it is free to use and I don’t have to worry about that little thing called copyright that some people don’t seem to worry about… Shame on them

Ten Degrees West

So Balooz has invested in another camera this time on a Quad copter. The aim is to enhance our films with the aerial clips but not ultimately to shoot exclusively from the air. A film needs to tell a story. To do this normal cameras and microphones remain the best option. Plus our ability to shoot underwater has us covering all eventualities… Please get in touch with us if you need a film shot, publicity, documentary, wedding etc.
