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.

Fibre Powering a Community

Fibre Powering a Community, Balooz was commissioned by “Beara Tourism” to make a film with the help of some local and enterprising volunteers. The aim was to¬† help the Parish of Allihies hopefully win the Eir competition to be the first small community to get high speed broadband. Unfortunately and despite the film being accepted by the committee involved, the film was later modified very badly with clips used from RTE probably without their permission. Also other bits of video were added without the consent of Balooz or even for that matter the committee. Even to the point of removing the name Balooz from the film and their copyright notices. This was so wrong a new film could be made about the story. Such a disappointment that some body felt they had the right to ignore respect and decency and do what they like with total disregard for the local community and committee members. Not really the way a small community should be treated. The film has been removed from The Eir Website after the competition had finished. The original film is here to be seen.

Although it was a fairly tough course the scenery is amazing and that more than makes up for the difficulty This will go on to being a yearly event. Thanks to all who came.
