Matt Houlihan a seven year old from West Cork climbed Ireland’s highest peak Carrauntoohil on Tuesday. The mountain is 1038 meters high and he made the ascent look very easy. He was with his family Heidi, Fran and Niall, plus his godfather Mike who flew over from the UK to accompany him.
Matt’s father Iñaki died of kidney cancer five years ago and Matt wanted to do something in memory of him. So he set up a go fund me page and got sponsorship to climb the mountain.
Matt Houlihan is seven years old, he did a sponsored climb of Carrauntoohil to get money for Kidney Cancer Research. He did a great job of it too, what a pleasure to go with him and make this film.There is a link in the film, write it down and donate some money for this lads brilliant effort.
Michael Dwyer Festival 2018, this year was the twentieth anniversary of the festival and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Musicians came from near and far and lots of great sessions were to be seen and heard.
On the opening night Two time Polka gave a cracking gig in the Lighthouse bar, every body was up dancing within a few minutes.

Lehanmore Panto The Sound of Music was a great success last night for the fourth and last performance. It was the fifth Panto in five years, written by Bill Griffin and Carina Mc Nally with all the cast adding a few lines here and there also. Behind the scenes were Bernie organising the whole show and tickets, Billy Murry who painted the sets and Sarah O’Connor who was prompting and doing the sounds.
