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.

Swimming Dursey Sound

Swimming Dursey Sound on the last day of the Allihies festival, and a difficult day it was with a strong current making it hard for some of the swimmers. So there are three ways to get to Dursey Island, boat, Cable car and swimming. Well done to all the swimmers who took part and they had a well deserved hot whiskey afterwards. Followed by a snack at the Allihies Mine Museum Cafe.

West Cork Storms

West Cork Storms seem to be endless the last few weeks down here on the Beara peninsula it is causing some mighty havoc to the seas. Lots of damage to the coastline and indeed the electricity grid too. The wind has been knocking down electricity posts and the community have been experiencing power cuts of a few hours at a time. A series of photographs here from Garnish Pier, the Dursey Sound, Balydonegan and Reentrisk. It was difficult to keep the lens clean so some images are a bit smudged.
