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 :)
Not my usual style, and something I haven’t done in a while! Took a walk around Eyre Square and Shop St. in the sun, looking for some character!
So I’d never been to Achill Island! Time to fix that…..
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.
I was lucky enough to spend a very special weekend in Rome this year- when I was packing my bags there were warnings of severe weather on the news, and sure enough on my first full day in the Italian capital (during which I had a business meeting) the snow descended on the city.
Red Bull held the first Irish round of their Cliff Diving World Championships on the island of Inis Mór – I was invited along by the guys at Red Bull to capture some of the atmosphere!
The GKC Crew ventured into the teeth of some pretty nasty weather this weekend and emerged into the gleaming sunday morning light for a second day of paddling on Clew Bay. We managed to sneak up on the Seals this time!
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
Every St Patrick’s day there is a parade that aims to show a cross section of Galway life and society- and this year was no different! Thousands of people marched and celebrated the diversity and nature of Irish life, culture and sport whilst being cheered on by thousands more.
I decided to make a review video of my year 2011 – it turned out to be a much tougher and more arduous process than I first thought- I went through thousands of clips to condense everything into one three minute video. I’d like to thank everyone who tolerated my constant ducking behind a lens… Continue reading rewind | 2011
Video : Seven days in Basilicata In September I was invited to spend a week in Basilicata, Italy with six other bloggers and filmmakers from the USA, France, Netherlands, South Africa and Italy.

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
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.
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
So it’s been two months since I got my diver’s licence, but I hadn’t used it yet. Nor did I get any good underwater pics yet. Time to rectify both those things! I went for a shore dive to 10 meters in the morning with my shiny new Canon Powershot D10, and took a few… Continue reading December Diving
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.
