Lovely picture - remember going to the SeaWeed baths at Enniscrone and the shock of a shower of very cold sea water. Used to stay with Mick Eagan at the Links Lodge and fish from his boat on Carrowmore. Happy days.
Did he tell you the story about having his finger shot off by some IRA bandits when on police duty. As you say a character and together with his lovely wife Sally ran a great B&B.
Lovely shots by Kenny. And yes they are reminiscent of of the Dingle surf beaches. This is a diversion from salmon fishing, but surfcasting for bass on Fermoyle Strand in the 1980s was one of the most memorable fishing experiences of my life. I have a friend in that part of the world & we walked several times this year on Mount Brandon from where you can see the fulll sweep of those magnificent strands - Fermoyle, Kilcummin etc. Some small school bass are showing up there so maybe one day....My first thoughts were lovely bass beach, fishing in the surf with lugworm.
Brings back memories of the surf fishing on the Dingle peninsula.
They sold Links Lodge some years ago and moved up to the village. Saw him a couple of years back at the landing stage - we were being entertained (?) by John Cosgrove. Used to fish at Chew with Mick's English boatman Phil Haley.
