Visit Whiddy Island, just off the coast at Bantry harbour lies the island of Whiddy. A magical mysterious island to spend a pleasant day or two on discovering its natural and historical beauty. Get in touch with Tim O’Leary and he will arrange your ferry trip. There is the Bank house bar on the island for food and refreshments and you can walk or cycle around the island at your leisure. The island also has some rental homes if you fancy a tranquil time away from the mad rush of mainland life. Check out whiddyferry.com for information. They have started up guided tours for 2015, very knowledgeable guide. Make this year, Visit Whiddy Island year.
Maybe even some of the crew from RedFM should visit too, as they don’t seem to know where Whiddy Island is…

Ger Jerome Stone Mason at work on the Beara Peninsula. I decided to make a short video of Ger whilst he was working on the infamous “Dunboy Bends” . It would be nice if he did a voice over for it as he is the main character and it would help his video get more views.

Making Short Films based on fiction is a time consuming activity. The more people involved the longer it takes. The film in question is “Caillte” based on an idea by Carina Jeisy. It will be around 8 to 10 minutes once it is finally finished. We won’t be able to publish it here as we are hoping to enter the film into a competition. The idea of entering the competition is to try and keep the motivation.
