Dr Strangely Strange High Tide Club

Dr Strangely Strange High Tide Club on Friday the 17th of May a good show by the lads in Sarah Walkers gallery also known as the High Tide Club. They had the audience in the palm of their hands. Unsurprising as they have been playing together for a  number of years….The new group “The Bunties” played before as support act and sang a good half dozen songs to warm up the crowd..

Castletownbere Coast Guard

Castletownbere Coast Guard were out last night for a cliff exercise at Dooneen (near Allihies). The team trains every two weeks to keep prepared and up to date with rescue procedures. Here four sets of ropes were set up to practise different scenarios: for example rescuing or assisting people who have fallen off a cliff or become stranded by incoming tide. All the exercises went well and the team finished off with a short visit to the bar.

Beara Motorcycling

Beara Motorcycling a 220 km route that takes in the Beara peninsula and inland towards kilgarvan Ballingeary and Durrus, done on a nice Easter Saturday with my friend Chris from xrvireland.org , leaving Allihies and taking the quickest route on the North side of the Beara to Kenmare and a short stop in Café Moka for breakfast. It was busy in Kenmare so we headed off sharpish up the main road towards Kilgarvan and further, and then took a twisted set of boreens to Kealkill and further on to Durrus, the aim being to cross the countryside and getting to Durrus avoiding Bantry. Of course it takes a lot longer but some stunning scenery and roads. Cup of tea in Durrus and then a blast back to Allihies on the south side of the Beara. Nice day out took 2 hours to ride the 80KM from Kenmare to Durrus only stopping for some photos.
