Found a dodgy map on the wall at Ireland West Knock airport, made by Failte Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way, in which Lough Key Forest Park has been marked between Athlone and Roscommon instead of outside Boyle.

The first installment of Fáilte Ireland’s venture into the world of V.R. and 3D footage of the Wild Atlantic Way.

A virtually gnarly 360′ of Ollie ‘The Fla‘ O’Flaherty riding the surf beneath the Cliffs of Moher, County Clare.

Next week: sheep scaring on the Burren.
