Goula Beara Cork

Goula Beara Cork, a walk to take some photos and generally enjoy the “360” degree view from the top. Not a bad day in January for a walk. I did not want to drive to Hungry hill so I could save on the petrol, sorry to Paul O’Shea about that. Goula has a great view from the top overlooking Dursey Island. You can also see, Bere Island, Calf Rock, Cow Rock, Bull Rock, the Skelligs, Scariff and Deenish Islands from the top and the town of Castletownbere the biggest white fish port of Ireland. Today was not perfect but for this time of year a nice couple of hours if a bit cold on top, especially when you stop to take photos and make a short film. There is a link at the bottom of this page to the video on youtube….

Allihies was a major copper producer in the 1800’s and for a short while was the worlds largest producer of copper ore. There are many remains of Cornish mine engine buildings, and hundreds of meters of mine adits and shafts. There is also a very good museum. check out the link Allihies copper mine museum

Cinder-Eile Lehanmore

What a fantastic experience to share with my fellow actors. Some scenes from the panto at Lehanmore. The first of many more to come over the following years. The community enjoyed the laughs that were had.

It’s all over now, I think there is a good chance that something else will happen for the next Panto season 2014…

Lehanmore is out there on the edge of the world, the furthest you can get from Dublin and still be on the mainland.
