Recently we stayed at Coolieragh’s, Glengarriff, county cork , its a great location just west of Glengarriff.

The coast line is full of rocky coves that are perfect for taking a swim, we took molly our golden retriever down to the best of these many time during the week. She loves to swim and even though the water was cold we also took the opportunity many time as well.

Secret Cove

I took my breath from a sea breeze
on its way to somewhere else.

I could sense where it had been
where summer is almost over
Beyond the cliff above the sea

A secret cove where spirits swim
a place no one ever sees

Timeless souls, their presence is felt
their breath upon the breeze.


My secret Spot on Newtown beach.

My Secret spot

To a few I showed my secret Spot,
To many I reveal it is on The Beach,
In Waterford, still without my help,
none may find, because its called mine,
My hidden Newtown Beach Spot

Its open, its free, its peaceful and protected
All can find, all can see, but beyond the vision,
belongs to me, My Secret Loved Spot,
On the Beach, in Newtown…

A friend I call to Show my Paradise,
and share the secret rooted
inside my heart, with all my soul,
My loved Newtown Beach
Blessed, and so dear to me!
