Heidi Allihies

Heidi Allihies trip in June 2014, a one nighter to Allihies to enjoy the fabulous weather. The kids managed to kayak, walk and scramble on their short trip out further west than their own home. The weather was fantastic, Allihies is about  a one hour drive from her place.

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.
