Reentrisk is a wild part of the Beara peninsula, very rugged coastline countryside. Here lots of photos and photography of the region.

Sea Kayak Dooneen

Sea Kayak Dooneen today with Nadette, the photos were taken with an old Casio compact in a dive box and the lens often had salt water on it. Dooneen was the site of the first of the Allihies Copper Mines and it opened in 1812. The tunnels are visible right down to sea level and it must of been a hell of a place to work in anything other than good weather.

The kayaking is easy to Dooneen and safe enough for most paddlers with average ability. When your done you can head into the village for a pint at O’Neills bar and restaurant and enjoy a nice meal.

Cork Storm

Cork Storm again and again, unrelenting storms hitting the coast of Ireland since Christmas, this one seems to be the worst yet with a recorded 98 miles per hour wind speed. All of the fishing vessels are hiding in Bantry bay to avoid the terrible weather. The ESB are dealing with tens of thousands of outages across the country and Munster is receiving its worst weather in over twenty years. Trees are down on the road around Dunboy and bits of debris are sliding along the roads. Neil is hoping that the power cuts will happen again tomorrow so he can get a day off school….

This was typed 24 hours ago, we had a power cut of 22 hours and the total numbers affected came to 250000…

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.
