“On June 28th and 29th 2014, 14 divers from nine nationalities, will battle it out on the Irish stop of Red Bull Cliff Diving. After a dramatic visit to the rugged west coast of Ireland in 2012, the world’s elite cliff divers are back for more in 2014 for two days of competition.”

This Sunday I went down to the Serpents Lair in Inis Mór to get photos of the Red Bull Cliff Diving and my god was it incredible. The athletes were leaping into the water below from a mighty height of 27 meters. The thought of the cold water below terrifies me more then the jump itself but luckily they were given the most incredible Irish weather for the event. Basking on the rocks was also quite the treat.

The Red Bull chill out spot for before and after the actual diving was also pretty sweet. There was a coffee spot, fudge spot and of course a blow out burger joint for all those hungry tums.

Until next time,
