We went for our Beara 3K a day walk today. I did not intend making any film, just photos. We ended up revisiting an old mine entrance, up in the hills so I just shot a few clips, a short film, but it gives an impression of the place.
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.

Beara 3K a Day, “Look a little closer”, after having done seven films I needed a new angle to keep the interest going. So, inspired by Nadette, who is always “looking closer” I made this little film, I hope you enjoy it…
