Knockanure Vintage Day 2017


Sunday August 20 was the date chosen for the annual Vintage Day in Knockanure. It must have been one of the worst days of a summer memorable for bad days. However a few brave souls ventured abroad and of these Elizabeth Brosnan and Jer took a few photos.

A Blustery Day in Ballybunion 


While I had my two lovely boyeens with me for their Kerry holiday we decided to brave The Cliff Walk on a day so windy it was fit for little else but walking.





The windswept boys viewed the incoming clouds.




We encountered a band of brave souls coming in the opposite direction. They were the U.S branch of the Kissane family who were in town for their clan gathering.




We could watch sea erosion at work before our eyes.







We briefly sheltered in this shepherds' cottage.
