Nohoval Cove at Night

Nohoval Cove in Co Cork is hidden away near Robert’s Cove but is a lonely part of the world. There’s a narrow road going down there, with just about enough parking for three cars. When the tide is in the water comes all the way to the slip and you have to clamber up on a rocky ledge to safety.

This was my first time down there and I had an enjoyable evening with Mark and Henry of Blarney Photography Club!

The Baltimore Beacon

The Baltimore Beacon was the scene of a terrible tragedy on Tuesday when three people lost their lives in the sea there.

It emerged yesterday that the four-strong party — the other being Mr Ryan’s teenage daughter, Charlotte Davis Ryan — may have been fishing rather than walking when tragedy struck.

It is understood that Ms O’Connor may have been knocked into the water first by a wave, and Mr Davis Ryan went to save her.

It is understood that Mr Ryan asked then his daughter to raise the alarm, and that conscious of the lack of mobile phone signal in the area, she ran up the hill towards the Beacon, quickly borrowed a phone from some tourists and made the call. Valentia Coast Guard confirmed yesterday that the emergency call was made from a foreign mobile number.

By then, Mr Ryan had entered the water in an attempt to rescue his son and his girlfriend. The time between the emergency call being received at 6.36pm and the lifeboats arriving at the scene at 6.50pm and taking Mr Ryan and Ms O’Connor from the water was described as “seriously fast” by Valentia Coast Guard.
