Renovator play Allihies Festival . The band drove from Tralee to play in Allihies on the Beara Peninsula for the village festival. A great night out and everybody was rocking on the street. The music was part of the evenings entertainment which included Tug of War and Wheel Barrow racing.
Coastguard Display at Lehanmore, the Castletownbere team displaying the procedure of lifting a casualty in a stretcher up a cliff. These shots show what happens at the top of the cliff and not the actual climbers and stretcher. The work at the top of the cliff involves a number of team members. When the hauling begins it takes a number of pullers, the amount depending on the ratio of the pulley system. In these pictures the ratio is 5:1

Roofing old shed in Allihies on the Beara peninsula. These old stone sheds need looking after so that the Irish countryside retains some of its farming heritage. Easy to knock down an old shed and rebuild a bigger and better one, but that means we lose some of the stone work that used to be so common in the old days. This shed only needed one side doing as the other side was replaced a few years ago as it receives more of the oncoming weather. Just need a nice fine day to repair the concrete at each end of the roof.
