Wishing You a Very Happy Christmas

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy Christmas and New Years Break. If you’re looking for some holiday entertainment all of my Along Home Shores videos are up now on the UTV website – if you haven’t yet caught an episode check it out here.


This is the right time of year for reflection and planning and as I look back on Along Home Shores I’ve listed my Top 10 moments featured on the show:

Ten Highlights in Filming Along Home Shores

  1. A Dawn swim in the 40foot on a fabulous September morning

  3. Capsizing the Kayak at the cliffs off the giants causeway, County Antrim
  4. Dropping the 100 feet in the 2 locks at Ard Na Crusha powerstation in County Limerick
