Allihies 2011

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

We returned to Allihies for the Festival again this year.  Although it wasn’t as big as last year’s centenary celebrations (no pig racing this year) there was still plenty going on.

With the kids a bit older we broke the family record on how far we got up the hill behind the Copper Mines and with Nana’s help we even got out for a late pint in the O’Brien’s this year!

Regular readers will know I like to ‘go analogue’ on my hols and so it’s taken longer than I’d like to get the pics up!

Ballinlough Summer Festival 2011

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

This year’s Ballinlough Youth Clubs Summer Festival is on this coming Saturday, 27th August at the Ballinlough Community Centre.  The event starts at 3:30 and will run until around 10pm.

As usual lots of fun for all the family laid on by our local Community Groups.

Rob Lamb Photography is pleased to support the event this year and we’ll probably see you there at some stage!

Although I’m not planning on getting ‘roped’ into the tug-of-war this year – the opposition is too scarey!
