You will often find people Parascending from the mountain of Slievenamon , county Tipperary. The mountain is located on the border between counties Kilkenny and Tipperary and offers great views of both.

Late one evening recently, I came across three people walking up and I walked along side them for a while as the carried their equipment to the top and then all took off at the same time, it was just amazing to stand and watch them as they circled around above then disappeared off into the distance some miles away.

One place I keep returning to for some photography is the beach at Bunmahon, County waterford.

There is always lots going on with kite flyers and Surfers.

The waves are not be the highest in the country here as the beach is on the south coast, the best surf can be found on the west coast of Ireland( Counties, Clare and Galway for example). It is however a perfect location for beginners or locals at in the evening or at the weekends.

The following photographs are or a local surfing club surfing during the summer.
