Dursey Island is a small island just off the end of the Beara Peninsula in south west Ireland, it is joined to the mainland with a cable car, the only cable car in Ireland. Here lots of photos and photography of the island.
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?
Beara Sheep Shearing at Ballinacarriga at the farm of PJ “Phàdraig” O’Sullivan on the very end of the Beara Peninsula overlooking Dursey Island. PJ got a sheep shearing team in for the day and got all of his sheep done in one go. This is the second film in the new series of “Beara Paople and Places” and again there was no acting. The filming was done on the go, no stopping the action for special shots.
If you can suggest the next film feel free to do so…
