This is the Life!
Saturday morning was a beautifully crisp November morning in Ballybunion. Mike Enright was out early fishing. He captured these stunning views as the sun rose. He also got some amazing flounder and bass.
Billy O’Connell of Lixnaw, Co. Kerry

His Facebook biography says this;

Director of Colette’s Children’s Home, an emergency shelter and transitional
housing program for homeless women and women with children. Founded in 1998,
Colette’s provides a safe home and nurturing environment where women and
