Garnish GAA Win Cup at Adrigole today Sunday 31st of August. A wet and windy day for the Beara final on a wet pitch. The lads did very well though after an inspiring team talk by the Manager Finbarr Harrington. At half time they were 2 – 1 up but it should have been more. I guess they had another team talk and were told to pull their fingers out. The final score was 8 – 2 I believe but no one was really watching the points at the end. More so having celebrations in the rain on the pitch. Well done Garnish.

Not an easy day for photography with rain drops and misty lenses but hey ho… If anybody wants the full file to print get in touch.
Swimming Dursey Sound on the last day of the Allihies festival, and a difficult day it was with a strong current making it hard for some of the swimmers. So there are three ways to get to Dursey Island, boat, Cable car and swimming. Well done to all the swimmers who took part and they had a well deserved hot whiskey afterwards. Followed by a snack at the Allihies Mine Museum Cafe.
Beara Charity Cycle 2014 was a fun weekend with fantastic weather. We cycled from Castletownbere to Dingle taking in Molls gap which comes out to 146 KM on a scorching day. That is apart from the five lads who decided to do the ring of Kerry too which made their day a 220 KM day. Of course I was cycling so only have a few shots on day one of the start in Town and the food stop at Kenmare and Castlemaine. There was plenty of food too so nobody bonked…

On day two after a few pints the night before we headed back but went a slighter longer route through Kilgarvin making it 156 KM and I think most people were happy with their fitness levels as we all felt good riding again, at least after the first few KM.
Bike N Beara helped all the way as well as many others who will go unnamed (they know who they are) There are more photos on the bikenbeara website
