Walking in beautiful Doohoma
The idyllic scenery on the drive from Geesala to Doohoma along the winding road that skirts Tullaghan Bay never fails to impress no matter how many times we make the journey.
Stags of Broadhaven in November sunshine
I took advantage of the lovely weather we have been having of late to take a trip out to see the Stags of Broadhaven – one of Mayo’s most iconic and recognisable natural features; the archipelago rising like a prehistoric sea monster’s fins from the waves off the Dún Chaocháin peninsula along Mayo’s Wild Atlantic Way.

On this beautiful morning, there was no better […]
Killala kayakers at twilight

Kayakers paddling in the calm lagoon beneath the world-class architectural heritage of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Killala’s Round Tower; their voices echoing across the stillness of a beautiful August twilight.
