Garnish win against Urhan in the Beara JA Championships, a great match to watch on the 12th of August 2017. This film was just made up from shots taken from a static position on the side line as I was there for an altogether different job.
Well done to Garnish, bad luck Urhan

Camper van cycling road trip France a two week trip with 4500KM of driving and a few hundred KM of cycling up some epic French mountain passes.
Start off with a 328KM drive to Rosslare for the Irish Ferries boat to Cherbourg
Waiting to board
Crossing was rough.
The cabins are very good, great night sleep 13 hours non stop.
Entry to Cherbourg, I guess Napoleonic Fort
First stop “Chez Ginnie” a friend of Nadette’s who she met in India.
Then on to Baudelys “chez Jean”
Sardines and squid
Neil cycled up the Pic de Nore two times in two days, the second day was a French race he entered. There were some issues with his UCI licence but it all worked out in the end. 24KM of uphill all the way.
Jean shows Neil his vines
Jean Sandrine Neil Richie and Nadette
Cycling past this sign, it aint no 2 minutes 😉
Stopping for lunch on the way to Mt Ventoux
Drying Tilleul in the sun, whilst Neil and I ride the Mt Ventoux from Malaucene
Made it, very hot I was slower than last year at 2hours and 10 minutes. Neil was 1 hour thirty five
Lunar landscape at the top of Ventoux
Neil does Ventoux second time from Bedoin, 90 minutes, one of the fastest on that day.
Looking down from the top
We stayed for a few days “Chez Fabienne” in a tiny hamlet, Provence near Buis le Barronils.
Unlike Ireland, French people are still driving their old cars, if they pass the MOT why not. The most ecological car is an old one. Not consumerism
Beara Sheep Shearing at Ballinacarriga at the farm of PJ “Phàdraig” O’Sullivan on the very end of the Beara Peninsula overlooking Dursey Island. PJ got a sheep shearing team in for the day and got all of his sheep done in one go. This is the second film in the new series of “Beara Paople and Places” and again there was no acting. The filming was done on the go, no stopping the action for special shots.
If you can suggest the next film feel free to do so…
