O’Neill’s Bar – Sunday Session is every week 52 weeks a year. The session in Kevin’s bar has been going on for a very long time, it is a great evening where all year around the locals get together for a chat and a sing song. When the summer months arrive the tourists join in too. It does not matter what time of year you come to Allihies, there will always be a bit of craic in O’Neill’s bar on a Sunday night. Sure you’ve a great life of it…
Dirty Old Town one Sunday evening a few years back
There is a session every Sunday night in O'Neills Bar of Allihies, on the Beara Peninsula, this clip is now four years old so I thought I would share it again on the auld Social Media.You've a Grand auld Time.Dirty Old Town, Ewan MacColl
I received news about a seaweed survey going on near Adrigole. So I decided to get in my car and go and see what was going on. I am glad I did as the collective efforts of Coastwatch, Cork Environmental Forum and Cork Nature Network. Gave a very interesting visit. A group of volunteers went to a series of rock pools and devised the plan of cleaning one completely of the invasive seaweed known as “Sargassum muticum” and leaving the other pool alone. They did that last autumn, today six months later the cleared pool is again being invaded by the seaweed but is a lot clearer than the one they left alone.
As I understand it the invasive Japanese seaweed probably came to Ireland with Oyster seeds that have been farmed here. The problem with the seaweed is that it fills rock pools and blocks out the sun, effectively stopping everything else in its path.
A great initiative and very interesting for the children that were there too.
