He was very old by this time. I have photos of him in a buggy as he couldn’t walk the distance from the ferry to the beach.
Oscar on Cow Strand, Sherkin Island. August 2013.
Sherkin Island is a small island just off the coast of Ireland. It’s reached by a ten minute ferry ride from the village of Baltimore in West Cork and on a sunny day there’s hardly a better place to be!
Known locally as “The Abbey”, this ruin was a Franciscan friary that operated from the 1400s to 1796 when the last friar died. In the background you can see the Baltimore Beacon.
