Tramore’s Beach & Backstrand

Everybody from Tramore, and probably anyone living within an hour’s drive, loves the beach in Tramore. At Christmas time, with so many people home, you release how special it is to have on our doorstep. I’ve been walking down the beach every day.

2011: Amazing people fill this world

Last year I’ve met some inspirational people, who’ve achieved amazing things in life and in sport. By meeting these people, they make you realise that the sky really is the limit. Shoot for the stars and who knows where you’ll land… First off I think of Nuala Moore, a Kerrywoman who has done so many remarkable … Continue reading 2011: Amazing people fill this world
