Cliff Jumping Allihies

Cliff jumping near Allihies on the Beara Peninsula. This was filmed a few years back. As summer is coming I decided to do an edit of it and make it into a one minute film for face de book. The lads jumping took their time to make sure it was safe to do so and had a great afternoon.

Cliff Jumping Allihies, Beara Peninsula, Cork

Summer is on the way, brings back memories of happy sunny afternoons at the sea. On the Beautiful Beara Peninsula, be careful if you decide to try this though.

Seven year old climbs Carrauntoohil

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.

Watch a short video of Matt’s ascent here
