The Beara Peninsula is a spectacular peninsula. One of the fingers of land jutting out of the south west corner of Ireland in Munster. It is saved of all the hustle and bustle that can be found in Kerry, simply as it is not possible to drive around in a coach. Here lots of photos and photography of the region.

Lehanmora Pantomime – Behind the scenes

Lehanmora Pantomime – Behind the scenes where all the action is. The Pantomime has been a huge success this year. Lots of people involved, Billy and Carina writing the original script. Which of course changes as the practices go by to add in more fun to the show.

Many thanks to the Women’s shed and Ger for creating costumes. A special mention for recently departed Desie Merrigan for writing the great song used in the Panto. “The Blowins and the locals should be friends”

Billy Murray for the set, with help from Ryan, Lilly and Lucy.

Back stage much needed help from Sarah who prompts any one of us who forgets their lines, and Nadette for the fantastic make up.

Watch a short film from back stage here – sound on?

Lehanmora Panto – Behind the scenes

Back stage and practice clips taken over the last few weeks, shows a bit of what goes on. Great fun again this year and very well supported, four sell out shows.

The last collection An Post Allihies

An Post Office Allihies, “The Last Collection” Allihies An Post Office, “The Last Collection”, filmed a while back and put together now that there are only a few months left. Good luck to Eily on her retirement when it happens. The village will be lost without the Post Office, I guess it is a case of being a business before a service….. Ireland will lose the furthest Post Office from Dublin, Allihies will lose a service and a social meeting point. Tourists will see the effects of dying villages on the “Wild Atlantic Way”….

Watch the video here, turn on the sound

Watch the video here

Allihies Inspireswhat a weekend

I don't suppose that this video will get watched very much at over 16 minutes long. It is a film for posterity of all the great things that happened in Allihies over the weekend. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed listening to poetry and readings of stories. Not surpised at all by the standard of work from Sami Switch and his friends and deligthed at the Music for Dogs theatre that capped it all off. Well done to all involved. Deirdre Collins what a woman for one woman.I can't remember all in the film but, amongst others:Carina McNally 0 SecondsAnita Brohail 39 SecondsTim Goulding 1:57 SecondsRachel Parry 3:43 SecondsTheo Dorgan 4:43 SecondsPaula Meehan 5:45 SecondsTony Curtis 6:38 SecondsSheena Dempsey 8:04 SecondsJane Landry 8:04 SecondsTadhg O'Sullivan 8:53 SecondsClaire Zwaartman 9:36 SecondsDiarmuid Hickey 10:40 SecondsAnita Daly 11:16 SecondsSykoni 12:02 SecondsSami Switch 12:15 SecondsBritney 13:05 SecondsCameron Bloomfield 13;16 SecondsNadette Charlet 14:07 SecondsBill Griffin 15:09 SecondsCarol Caffrey 15:31 SecondsSorry I missed a few things, I just did this for the memories.
