This has been a busy week and an exciting one, on Monday I set off to Dublin to pick up my new Cameras which I put on order last June, both cameras are the very latest
addition to the XD range of Broadcast Cameras on offer from Sony, I suppose leaving the huge investment to one side I certainly had a spring in my step not unlike a child waiting to get his hands on new toys. Most of the day on Tuesday was dedicated to setting the new cameras, matching picture profiles and audio settings to my requirements and making sure that they are set up to record to very highest level of performance. My first outing with the new cameras was a wedding video in Ardmayle Cashel. Corinne Mulcahy & Patrick Halley celebrated their wedding ceremony in the historic Ardmayle Church which is a very popular wedding reception for weddings in Cashel and surrounding parishes. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day and the church and grounds looked beautiful, its was a perfect setting for a country wedding. Corinne and Pat are well know in sporting circles, Corrine for show jumping and Pat for hurling and football both families are well known in Cashel, and Ardmayle. There was allot of talk about the big match on Sunday Tipperary Vs Kilkenny all Tipp supporters are in a positive mood, hopefully Liam McCarthy will come back home to Tipperary. I was looking forward to getting home last night and uploading the wedding footage, I am more than happy with the high quality video that these cameras are capable of recording. Looking forward to many more weddings in Cashel and surrounding areas during 2015/2016.
Here are a few pieces of information about the beautiful and famous Historic Town of Cashel Cashel.IE
Cashel is home to the iconic Rock of Cashel. One of the most spectacular tourist attractions in Ireland and one of the most visited. Cashel’s rich history is reflected in its built heritage, from prehistoric raths to medieval monasteries and fortified town houses, a Georgian Cathedral and a 21st century Library (which holds regular exhibitions, workshops and concerts). The Georgian quarter also boasts the Bolton Library where you can find the smallest book in Ireland.
The Bolton Library contains a unique collection of antiquarian books and is the finest collection outside of Dublin. The books were collected by Archbishop Theophilis Bolton, Archbishop of Cashel from 1730 to 1744. The library is now housed in the Chapter House situated in the grounds of the Cathedral Church of St. Patrick’s Rock and St. John the Baptist in John Street, Cashel.
The unique Brú Ború performing group have achieved international recognition on five continents. They are in constant demand throughout the world because of their performance of Irish authentic traditional music, song and dance. The group have accompanied President Mary McAleese to Oman where they performed for the Sultan of Oman. They also represented Ireland at the World Expo on four occasions in Osaka Japan, Seville in Spain, Nagoya Japan and a group of 30 artists accompanied President Mary McAleese to Shanghai, China for the 2010 World Expo, where they presented their show for President Mary McAleese and her Chinese hosts on Ireland’s National Day. Most recently members of the group travelled to Lesotho where they performed for St. Patricks Day 2012 and had the honour of performing for the King of Lesotho. This group comprises the very best and most talented of musicians, singers and dancers. Enjoy an evening of live traditional entertainment with renowned accordion player Bobby Gardner, the delightful airs of fiddler Eileen O’Brien and Tipperary’s finest singers Nora Butler and Tadhg Maher, just to name a few.
My next wedding this weekend is in Dungarvan, Co. Kilkenny, I have my Tippeerary blue and gold fags flying at full mast on my van, looking forward to the comments.
