Inis Mor with Chika from Christopher Tierney on Vimeo. Last OctoberI took a trip to Inis Mór with my friend Chikako! The only camera I had available was the iPhone, so that’s what I used :D Here are the results, hope you like them :)
My friend Funatsu came back to Ireland this week for a few days of sightseeing, so I decided a little tour of Connemara was in order! I borrowed a camera and some nice glass from Neil Warner and took Funatsu and Hannae on a whistle-stop tour! Route info View Connemara Day Trip… Continue reading Connemara Road Trip!
A walk in Barna Woods turned into a Bouzouki/Photo session when Yui and I brought along our favourite instruments. I went super-experimental with the light and shadow, then with some split toning in post-production.
Due to a lack of footrest I found myself with Lahinch on a GKC surf trip with no boat to paddle… fortunately I had my bases covered and brought along a waterproof cover for my SLR…. this was my first time trying out the camera cover and it worked out absolutely perfectly- I really love… Continue reading Fun Surf Session in Lachinch
The record breaking cold snap of December 2010 wasn’t without its perks… it provided more than a few photo ops… here are a few of my best images, starting off in the Maam Valley, heading back to my Apartment balcony, then on the way home to Tyrone via the train to Dublin & Belfast, and… Continue reading Cold Snap 2010
Some slowmo canine shenanigans in the park.

I went to Inis Mór in May for some camping- my first time on Inis Mór, I’d gone to Inis Meain loads of times so it was time for a change :D 36 hours of self-sufficiency and shelter :) A couple of people in a Curragh in Galway Bay The Twelve Bens mountains in Connemara,… Continue reading Camping on Inis Mór
The Galway Zombie Photowalk 2010 happened tonight… a fun evening out in Galway
A shot taken in May 2008 out at Kylemore Abbey in really glorious sunshine. The lake was espeically low, allowing me to kneel on the shore.
I just happened across this cycle race happening in Galway this evening, took a few abstract snaps!
On my trip to Inis Meain I met a group of Japanese guys who were in Galway for the weekend doing some sightseeing! We went out to McDonagh’s on Sunday evening when I returned, and we went to McSwiggan’s for some food on the bank holiday Monday night. This was taken in Eyre Square with… Continue reading After Inis Mór
A short after-work walk with my new Canon 550D and some experimental post-processing .
These windmills are set into Irish bogland, a place where peat is traditionally cut from the ground, dried and then burned. A new energy source built on top of an ancient one.
Everyone seems to be waiting for a thaw but I’m loving the snow. Day 3 in the tundra, this time out in Glencull, near Ballygawley. You can normally see the neighbouring towns of Augher, Clogher and Aughnacloy from up this high, but the fog in the valleys means there’s no chance of that this week.
Day two at home and the promised thaw didn’t materialise. Time to crawl out of bed and suit up again!
While The West was flooded and The North frozen in November and December I remained sheltered in Galway City. My first bit of snow exposure this winter in at least 5 years came when I got stuck on the bus between Sligo and Eniskillen on the way home for Christmas…. fortunately we were rescued and… Continue reading Frozen North
I took a day trip to Inis Meain with some friends and my camera… the weather was beautiful but I forgot my sunscreen… paid for that one later! This was with Haruka and her sister Akiko, we took the ferry over in the morning, spent the day wandering around and just caught the ferry back. … Continue reading A Grand Lá Out
The evenings are getting darker, but as long as there’s a bit of blue sky showing it’s worth rushing to get the sunset. I do need to start bringing a tripod, though!
I’ve been biking it down the prom recently in an attempt to get my fitness up again; I’ve been taking the camera and on Friday afternoon it paid off…
The course over, I’m on my way back to Galway when I come across this landscape. There was no way I wasn’t going to fire off a few shots! See this shot on Flickr
Okay, so last night’s effort wasn’t bad, but I thought I could do better… there’s a road and a lake near Kylemore where the trees make a neat tunnel… I thought that being inside that tunnel would give the best effect, but it turns out I had a sunset on one side and the rising… Continue reading A Week in Connemara : 2
Okay, so I’m up in Scuba Dive West for the week doing the PADI open water divers’ couse… the course is going great (have managed not to drown, anyway!)….. took this on Monday Night in Letterfrack, where I’m staying.
I haven’t processed all of the wedding pics from the wedding do, but I have managed to pick out some of the backstage shots at Parkanaur. While the official photographer did his job, I snuck around in the background getting the real scoop. Enjoy!
On 26th of August, Bar 8 in Galway had a Tokyo Nights theme night, complete with ParaPara dancers, some cosplay and lots of drinking! The party in full swing Asami and her friend Kana!

My friend Yuki posing for me as we put together some photography for her promotional materials. Yuki is a professional violinist and violin teacher and can be found at http://www.music-by-yuki.com/
This image was, as you’ve probably guessed, taken in Blackrock, Salthill. Taken at midnight against the rising moon, the shot (and the anonymous hooded swimmer) later went on to be feature on the cover of Country of the Grand, a book of short stories set in Galway and written by Gerard Donovan. You can buy… Continue reading Country of the Grand
