Finally I made it back to west Cork! For the first time in over 5 years I made the epic journey to beautiful south west of Eire. I was keeping an eye out for small and interesting festivals to bring my henna tent to over the summer and just by chance I stumbled upon Liss Ard. Set in the beautiful grounds of Liss Ard house, on the outskirts of Skibbereen, the festival was a 2 day event with headliners Chic putting on a staggering end of tour show on the Saturday night. I arrived down on friday evening to set up and between getting stuck in the mud and missing tent poles I wasn't getting off to a festive start. But the sunset brought the most incredible red sky I've ever seen and with that auspicious omen I slept well in the henna tent, right opposite the main stage!
