So, Kerry has made the top three destinations WORLDWIDE with Big Event Travel, citing the "mountains, lakes and coasts" as "picture perfect" and according to the author, and we completely agree - "that’s before you add in Killarney National Park"! Haven't been... contact us today!
Surround yourself with people that both believe in you and push you ... and the sky is the limit !
The team was super important for my 10k vertical challenge last weekend, everything from logistics to accompanying me to cooking for me up a mountain it all came together ... or just about ... except having to carry my 20kg supplies bag across the reeks at sunrise 😆 .
Let’s chat about them :
The legend @joedrive deserves sooo much credit - he probably did not think he would be out so long ... but he had a mission and executed it to perfection and puuuuushed me to the line ! . @neilkelders & @harold.clifton & @speedyjtango kept me going through the evening hours and kept shouting at me to eat ( but I never listened ) - you can see them on my stories highlights fooling with my Instagram 😝 . @portwestkillarney and @kerrywayultra were there to help with logistics and equipment!
. @valerie.osullivan.5203 As ever popped up on the mountains to record the event through her magic lenses !
. @niallpfoley was the videographer on duty and had a loooooong weekend - soooo lucky this guy has so much mountaineering experience as this was no normal video job ! . @evilcharmander is a young videographer that came aboard very very last minute to help out on the night stage and ended up cooking for me on the mountain !
The equipment I used was the very best ... each element added to the compound effect of me reaching my goals :
✅@corosglobal APEX watch is the best most accurate gps and was super important for this project .. I finished after 24 hours with 55% battery left 😲 .
✅ @lasportivauk raptors I put on 1/2 thru the challenge for my first ever ever !!! The lads said I was crazy 😜... they worked perfect 💯 .
✅ @lekiuk poles .... oh how cool are they 😆.... why did I wait until 3000m 😲 .
✅ @fenixlight headtorch was top was also perfect even on level 1 of 4
Again I will go through each of these shortly

I left Sneem nearly 30 years ago to get a job in Dublin. There were no job opportunities around Kerry in my chosen career and I have been living in Dublin ever since. But technology has moved on and so has Sneem. Now, thanks to the Sneem Digital Hub, I can work remotely from Sneem doing the same job as if I were in the office in Dublin. It also has the added benefit that my wife and kids are on holidays and can enjoy everything that Sneem has to offer.

Most people come to the gym to look better, feel better or just to generally get a bit fitter. Weight loss is great to have for a goal especially if you have a specific number in your head. But don’t let it be the only determinant of your progress.
Just by addressing your training and nutrition you can hugely improve the quality of your life. Going from having no energy or motivation for anything, to having energy all day, being more productive and spending more quality time with your family. It becomes easier to get out of bed in the morning, your sleep gets a lot better and your general mood just becomes better. .
All these things sound great and are easy to do. No exclusion of food groups or crazy calorie deficits, just takes being a bit more active and making better food choices.
I'm so proud of Orlaith and the journey she has been on recently. Facing up to breast cancer (or any cancer) isn't easy and you find strength from within that you didn't even know was there!
We first met when she reached out to me after her surgery and have since become great support to each other.
It was an honour to take her portrait and I know she found great healing in it and realises how special she is. So many ladies have been in touch to say they are going to book in when they loose weight and they don't feel good about themselves at the moment and will be back in a few months.
Ladies, there is never a perfect time and we spend most of our lives waiting for the right moment and the right moment is now!
Trust me, there isn't a body shape I haven't seen and photographed and they were all beautiful.
These days in Kerry have been amazing. Now I understand why this county is called The Kingdom ( also I now agree with the “get back hedges “ thing or the possibility to go to the pub driving a tractor 🚜). I’m so happy to have the chance to call Ireland 🇮🇪 my home!
