After Obama’s Speech, College Green, Dublin

leave a comment »

When President of America, Barak Obama came to Dublin I was interested in looking closely at how people reacted to the event. I wanted to see if a little of his confidence and positivity would rub off on the assembled masses. I wasn’t dissapointed. Many people had a little glow after the speech. There was an undenialble twinkle in many’s the eye.

365 times Up Croagh Patrick

leave a comment »

Matt Loughrey took the path up Croagh Patrick, known as ‘The Reek’ 365 times in sucession over the last two years. It’s the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest 30 times in a row. Myself and journalist Warren Swords joined him for his final climb. I’m looking forward to following his next adventure. His page on facebook is croaghpatrick365.
