Autumn arrives, the clocks have gone back in Ireland and the daylight length is now quite short. Here, the trees have lost most of their leaves those not carried by the flow of the water remaining on the rocks and riverbanks. This bridge is large, more than 12ft to the centre of the arch from the river below designed to…
From the coast to the mountains - a few weeks ago I headed to the coast for sunrise, the morning's forecast was for sunshine and a bright start to the day. In reality it was dull and grey and there was no hint of a colourful sunrise. I photographed and videoed at the Forty Foot in Dublin before making my…
Sometimes it's just as simple as this, the sun goes down and you're in the right location. Here, the Atlantic and the sunset fast approaches. The sun appears from behind a thick band of cloud just before it sets in the west on the autumn equinox when day and night are of equal length. The days have of course been…
While museums and many indoor attractions are currently closed in Dublin - including the Long Room Library and Book of Kells at Trinity College as the city is is on a three-week lockdown - the rest of Ireland is open. Exploring the Irish countryside with camera is not a new endeavour to me but for much of this year it…
Dublin's Forty Foot is one of the most famous swimming spots in Ireland, and possibly the world. With recent visitors including Matt Damon, Loudon Wainwright III and of course me, the Forty or 40-Foot also featured in James Joyce's Ulysses. I have of course written here on Panoramic Ireland about the 40-foot, where I mentioned that the water is definitely…
I wrote recently about the production of a new film, postponed during the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic, set to be filmed this month at Cahir Castle, County Tipperary. Some of The Last Duel, starring Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Ben Affleck and Jodie Comer and directed by Ridley Scott is also being filmed at one of the finest scenic locations in…
As of September 10th 2020, Ireland still remains the most difficult country in Europe to get into and out of. International travel is currently still possible but with a mandatory 14 day quarantine and no allowance made for negative tests, the number of visitors coming to Ireland has fallen significantly and the Irish government has asked Irish people not to…
Stormy day in Dublin, looking across the River Liffey towards the Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the jigsaw building. A colourful day in the Irish capital, the River Liffey reflecting some of the colour of the sky and the quayside buildings.
I wrote a few weeks ago about that magical moment on top of Croagh Patrick with a wide open panorama and brocken spectre - an atmospheric phenomenon. You can read about that here, this was on that same fine climb with the plains of Mayo spread out below, the long stony path leading up into the cloud line and the…
Now little more than half an outline of a shipwrecked boat, the rotting planks that make up Bad Eddie's Boat, marooned on a Donegal beach since 1977, may soon become a more lasting figure if locals can raise enough funds to recreate the tourist attraction as a stainless steel work of art. Overlooked by the long abandoned Óstán Gweedore, the…
