Re: Tory Island

Great video and beautiful coastline Chris.

We paddled Achill Sound, Achill Beag, Clew Bay a couple of years ago - makes me want to go back and explore more of the area!

Re: Grommets (what grommets?) on Lomo paddle float...

Same problem with mine.

My lomo pump is also showing signs of giving up the ghost ( both bought within the last year ).
