Today we’re not sure we made distance on the Beara 3K a day, we went down to Balydonegan at low tide to film a few things to make this film. A few years back we were volunteering on a survey about the Allihies mines, here within are a few things that we learnt and summised with the help of Theo Dahlke who was the caretaker at the Allihies Mine Museum at the time.
Way over budget on this film, all the way to 2 minutes plus, I hope you enjoy the images and the history.
There are a lot of things to do and see if you just open your eyes.
Watch the film here
Balydonegan and its connection with the Copper Mines
We are very fortunate to be living on the Beara on these days of isolation. The Beara has long been known as an isolated place, it plays to our advantage now as most of us can enjoy a walk within the 2KM radius limit in serene countryside. For people less fortunate than ourselves, who would like to reconnect with the Beara and or nature, enjoy, stay safe.
