Dursey Island Cable Car Closure 2022

Dursey Island Cable car closure will be on the first of April, the closure is expected to last through until October. In reality there is a good chance that the Island will be inaccessible for a lot longer than that. I visited the island to meet some of the farmers and spoke to some of the local people who would be regular visitors to the island to hear and film their thoughts on the closure as well as the future plans for a bigger service and its impact on the island.

Many thanks to Joe Sullivan, Gerald Murphy, Paul O’Shea, Anne Mc Nally, James Sheehan and David Dudley for their participation in the film.
I can only hope that the contractor and funding for the job are found soon as it is going to be a long time coming.

This film was made by myself simply as a historical archive for future reference I received no funding or remuneration for my work, which amounts to many hours of filming and editing. All done with Fujifilm cameras and some DJI Drone footage at 4k resolution.

Also thanks are due to Carina Mc Nally, Jerome Dwyer, Michelle Dudley, Patricia Sheehan and Nadette Charlet.

Of course Copyright is by definition attached to the film.

Thanks

PS Any other stories or events happening, let me know.

An evenings Bass fishing with Ken

A nice evening filming Ken fishing for Bass, from a distance… Rick turned up too for his evening walk with the dog. The time was right but the tide was wrong. Ken decided to give it a go anyway as it’s good therapy…

An evenings Bass fishing with Ken

Happy with the results of the film shot with my Fuji XT2. It was dark but the quality and mainly the focus was spot on. I was also using a Rode Video Mic with dead cat.
