Despite living on the opposite sides of the Atlantic Finola Finlay and Robert Harris met after discovering a shared interest in Irish Bronze Age Rock art; Finola was living in Northern Canada and Robert in the UK. They decided to settle together somewhere in the middle – the obvious spot was West Cork. Together they write the blog, Roaringwater Journal about their life here.
- They both say their favourite view is that that they see everyday, out their windows overlooking Roaring Water Bay, and agreed that something by Martin Hayes & ‘The Gloaming’ would be perfect, possibly “The Windswept Hills of Tulla”
- Robert wishes he had learnt to play the Uilleann pipes and Finola regrets she didn’t take up running sooner.
- Obviously, if they have a couple of spare hours they set out in search of Neolithic rock art, which there is plenty of! You just need to know where to look!
- When they were 5 – Robert wished he could have been a cat and Finola was devastated to discover that she couldn’t be an alter boy!
- Best night out? Robert loves a good trad session and Finola remembers watching a Schull Drama Group production followed by drinks with friends.
- What would they take home with them…Robert a stone from the beach and Finola a book from Whyte’s Bookshop.
- Robert wishes he owned a pet hare and Finola wants a deck from which to enjoy that magnificent view.
