Living by the sea in Castlefreke, Clonakilty, Kieran Coffey, a design engineer and water sports fanatic has been inspired by his surroundings and his life long passion for wind and water sports to create a land based wind-thrill experience in KazeCar.

Kieran has been windsurfing, surfing, and sailing for many years and his design combines his passion for wind sports with the excitement of land sailing at high speed.

KazeCar is a land sailing car using the power of the wind through a windsail attached to a uniquely designed aluminium body. This design combines the excitement of motor sports with the thrill of windsurfing.

Over time, Kieran has been testing and perfecting his design and is delighted to be at the stage where he is ready to manufacture this product and bring it to an international market.

He has enjoyed testing KazeCar on the many beautiful beaches in West Cork —the perfect beach with the right wind conditions combine to give an amazing wind sports experience. Whether you are in the driver’s seat or observing from a distance, KazeCar is one to watch.

Kieran is launching a worldwide fundraising campaign through the international IndieGoGo Crowdfunding platform on November 3, 2014, to finance the manufacture of KazeCar here in West Cork.

Crowdfunding is a very popular platform for the very effective raising of the necessary funds for bringing new and exciting business and design ideas to fruition. In these times of recession, it is amazing how successful crowdfunding is in helping to get a business idea off the ground. It has been excellent support for many Irish businesses, as well as artists and musicians and entrepreneurs all across Ireland.

There are some fantastic rewards on offer for support of KazeCar in this crowdfunding campaign. Find out more on November 3 at www.indiegogo.com. For more details on the campaign, and updates on progress check out Kazecar on FaceBook.

Watch out for a glimpse of KazeCar on a West Cork beach near you soon!

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
