Unexpected Bike Race
I was heading to my daughters under 12 football match this evening, intending on taking a few photographs of her playing for St. Colmcilles against Navan O’Mahonys and as I approached, I noticed that there were a lot of vehicles for such a game. It turned out that there was also a bike race scheduled to start at the same time. So, I had to make a decision…Stay and watch my daughter play her match or seize the opportunity for some sports photography and take a few snaps of the bike race.
Father of the Year
What to do, what to do?!? Well, get out the award for father of the year because I did the right thing in the end, I took a few photos of my daughter playing Gaelic (after taking a few of the race!!) I checked to see how long the race was on for and did a little bit of arithmetic in my head and I reckoned I’d be able to do both. What I hadn’t reckoned on was the fading light. So, I got a few shots of the cyclists and one or two of the match. Luckily, she has another match next week. I was also asked to cover another bike race in Carrickmacross early next month, so keep an eye out in my blog for that one too.
