OVER THE HILL, around the corner

BARRY Mottershead seeks out some lesser known slabs along the Irish coastline.

“I’ve been living in Ireland for ten years now.” Said Barry “It seems not so long ago that I was selling my worldy possessions to buy a plane ticket from Cape Town to London. I worked there for a short while and then flew over here with my brother Dave, to start a new life in Ireland. One that revolved around the sea and the weather.

“It took a year or two for us to get set-up, learn the lie of the land so to speak. It’s been a whirlwind of travel, waves and meeting friendly people, a blessed life that I am fortunate to lead. It’s a tough place to grow roots, cold, windy, expensive and sometimes lonely but living on the edge of the North Atlantic has a very raw feel to it. We are exposed to nature at her wildest, and I love that.”
