This is the hardest edit I’ve ever had to make. This video footage was recorded on the 17th of March 2011 as the Galway’s small Indian Community took part in the St Patrick’s Day Celebrations, and later as Ireland mourned the death of Savita Halappanavar; an outstanding ambassador for her home country and someone who will be sorely missed.

Never again.

Catch Me

Baboró International Arts Festival for Children is the second-biggest arts festival in Galway behind the Galway Arts Festival. Each year thousands of children & adults are wowed by the theatre, dance, visual art and workshops hand picked by Festival Director Lali Morris. I developed the Baboró website and also voulnteer to produce Baboró TV for the team. These are some of the videos and photos I produced during the Festival this year.

Blackrock Divers

Blackrock Diving from Christopher Tierney on Vimeo.

If the temperatures are anything to go by it would seem that Summer has arrived in Ireland. One of the principal Galwegian summer rituals is a swim at the diving board at Blackrock. One of the most popular municipal facilities (and probably the single most photographed object) in Galway, the diving tower hosts hundreds if not thousands of swimmers on days like these. I packed up my waterproof camera cover plus the Canon 550D and a Sigma 17-70 and finned my way into position using a pair of diving fins for extra maneuverability
