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.

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!

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
