McVeigh on Bens Gorm and Creggan
Another McVeigh gem. We are due some terrible summers: soon. And it will be great to look back and remember the wonderful summers of 2013 and 2014. McVeigh (and other film makers) have the memories locked away for us. But why wait for the rains? Why not "be in the moment" now. I woke early this morning and watched "Walking in Mayo on Ben Gorm". A couple of years ago, as the money was running out, in a final act of defiance, I purchased a Smart TV that (when it is in the humour) permits me to watch YouTube on a large screen. So there I was, at 6am, transported to the heart of Ireland's Atlantic mountain space. It was awesome. This was an overnighter for Gerry, a facility he seems to share with a handful of you (Martin and Sharron for example). How I envy the notion of a night on the mountains in a little tent. It is a skill that I have yet to learn and experience.
