The new film: Between Land and Sea by
Dublin filmmaker Ross Whitaker has been released at screenings all across
Ireland over spring and summer of 2017. The documentary follows the lives of
surfers based in La hinge County Clare on the west coast of Ireland over the
course of a year. Notable surfers Fergal Smith, John
McCarthy, Ally Flaherty and Tom-Doidge Harrison are featured, as are some of the
colorful characters from the burgeoning seaside town, including local swimmer Pat
Conway also known as “The Whale” I really liked it. This is the second time I’ve seen it.
