Achill Island off season video – One Shot Adventures

Loved this video and saw it come up again on my YouTube feed. Posted it before on Twitter but wanted to put it here on my blog. Really nice shots of some parts of Achill even if other parts of the island were missed.

RIP Purple One

Incredibly sad news today about Prince.

So many shocks this year but this one ranks along Bowie, at least for me.

If I had to pick one song by Prince – Money Don’t Matter 2 Night

 

The worst football violence I have witnessed

Just chatting with someboday and they brought up the subject of football violence. I’ve been to quite a few games and I was thinking which one was the worst in terms of violence. It was actually the first international game that I went to. Poland against England in 1993 in Katowice. Luckily, there is a video on youtube that shows some of the mayhem that went on that day.

The violence only took place among the Polish fans. The English fans were barricaded into their own section and surrounded by police. I was sitting on the other side of the stadium and I think that I spent more time watching the terraces rather than the football itself.

The game ended 1-1.
