Eyeries & the Wild Atlantic Way, Eire -1

The next few pages are shots I took in 2017 during a holiday on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork, Eire.

The small village of Eyeries is renowned for its colourful houses. Our cottage was to the North-East, beyond Derrivore and overlooking Ballycrovane harbour.

There’s not much more than a single street in Eyeries and, from the cottage where we stayed, we usually entered the village passing St Kentigern’s church (above).

Around the corner from where I took the featured photograph for this post, the street runs down towards the coastal road, North-East to Kenmare and West to Allihies

The people who live in Eyeries clearly work diligently to maintain the attractiveness of their village.

Even small touches such as the hanging baskets show pride.

The name of this colourful pub held particular interest for my wife, whose late husband Pat O’Shea was born in Cork.

I liked this pub with the Guiness Toucan on its inn sign.

This house amused me because its name, ‘The Pink House’ which belied the grey of its front walls.

My name is Gerald Murphy. I am a retired local government officer. At the time of my retirement I was an IT manager and had associated responsibilities for training. I had previously been involved, in various organisations, with aspects of industrial training and management development. My main hobby is photography and, until 2016, hillwalking in Snowdonia. Sciatica has put an end to mountain walks and, as a carer for my wife, opportunities for photography excursions are now more limited. Since July 2022, I have started using this site as a photobook.
