Gorgeous drone video footage of the Blackwater River at the Bóing near Millstreet, in July 2018. That July will be remembered as the year of the heat wave and drought, thus the fields aren’t as green as they might normally look, and the water level is quite low. The bridge was built in 2015 as part of the Beara Breifne Way, Ireland’s longest way-marked trail.
