Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018, this year was the twentieth anniversary of the festival and the weather was absolutely fantastic. Musicians came from near and far and lots of great sessions were to be seen and heard.

On the opening night Two time Polka gave a cracking gig in the Lighthouse bar, every body was up dancing within a few minutes.

Watch a video from the Friday night in the Lighthouse bar here, Two Time Polka

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

On the Saturday lot’s of things were happening, and I guess there are photos taken but that was not my job, we had some enjoyable pints out side the bars listening to a few bits of music between.

Sunday we were away bike racing, Neil got fourth…

On Monday night we went up to Jimmy’s for what has become the unofficial closing night.

and were treated to a song by Sue…

Watch a snippet of Sue’s song here, turn up the sound

Lehanmore Festival Tag Rugby

Lehanmore Festival Tag Rugby played on the old pitch next to the ring fort below the community centre. Probably the toughest pitch in Ireland. The Wild Atlantic way between Castletownbere and Dursey Island and its Cable Car. The final match was between Paul O’Shea’s team and The Beara Joinery team and O’Shea took the prize. Well done to all for taking part on a tough afternoon.

Watch a Short Video of the Tag Rugby Here

Eyeries Family Festival

Eyeries Family Festival ran over the weekend of 17 – 19th of July 2015. It was a brilliant piece of organisation and I am sure all that attended for all or part of it had a great time. There were so many things to see and do that it would have been impossible to be everywhere. Well done to the committee of organisers. Many thanks also to their many sponsors the main sponsor being Marine Harvest.

Watch a video of the festival here (version two with Irish Dancing included and music).

The video was shot by Richie Hodges from Balooz with help from Senan O’Connor from Vantage Point Video. Sorry if we missed you, but as said above very difficult to do everything. (Just added some Irish dancing thanks to John Angles)
