Garnish GAA The Longest Road took place over Saturday and Sunday the 20 and 21 of February. The 24 hours were split into segments and each member of the team had to walk or run. Also of course many club supporters made the effort too. It was a wet and windy weekend. The aim was to manage to cover the distance from the GAA pitch at Cahermore to the pitch at Youghal.

That distance was easily reached, and the target of €4800 was more than doubled and currently stands at €10740. The monies raised are to be split between Garnish GAA & Castletownbere Hospital. The donation page is still open untl the 24th of February.
Mr and Mrs O’Dwyer had their wedding on a fabulous September day, the weather was just amazing. Covid 19 had it’s part to play for this wedding which was supposed to be back in May. Only 48 people were allowed to attend and I was delighted that Rachel decided she wanted to keep me on as the cameraman for the film. It was truly a wondrous day and despite the numbers being limited I believe everybody had a great time.
Early in the morning Rachel was happy that Tanya O’Neill and Marie O’Shea turned up to make them all look even more pretty than they normally do, with attention to their make-up and hair. Also she was delighted with the wonderful flower arrangements by Peter Tora.
The Allihies Mine Museum was the first stop after the service for some food, prepared by Pema which was brilliant. Then on to the Eccles Hotel in Glengarriff who did a fantastic job looking after everybody.
Great craic was had and the speeches were brilliant. Even a bit of a tear jerker from Ebby…

Happy to say that a large part of the clips used were from some of my previous work, somehow they used my clips without my permission, but it is all good I got paid in the end, thanks. They got a cameraman to come down all the way from the city for the town bits. I don’t know the names of the other contributors, so I can’t name them. Would have been nice if all film producers were named.
