We have some exciting news here at TPJ. Irish Olympian Arthur Lanigan O’Keeffe has agreed to tell his story with us and share his incredible journey – we’re starting our first collaboration if you will – He is on a bit of a roller-coaster of a journey to the Olympics in Rio 2016 and has decided to vlog his countdown… so what better way to combine the two forces.
He competes in a discipline called the modern Pentathlon which includes running, fencing, riding. shooting and swimming and he went to the London 2012 Olympics and did well. This time it’s serious though and he has begun his countdown already. I’ll post his first few vlogs below, they’re super interesting and give you a real insight into what it’s actually like to train that hard and become an elite athlete in Ireland.
We can’t wait for this journey and are delighted to welcome Arthur into the TPJ family. Hopefully he’ll write a couple of articles on the site and bring me around to different competitions in the lead up to the games. We are very excited to be there at the start of this! Bring on the world…literally.
It’s gonna be a funnnnnnn trip. Enjoy the view, TPJ xxx

So this week we were lucky enough to be invited to Balaton Sound festival in Hungary and bloody hell, what a few days it was. From the 8th to the 12th of July, located on Lake Balaton about 2 hours South West of Budapest It describes itself as a festival of Music, Lake and Sun…and that’s exactly what we got. It was just so good. 30 degrees, fresh water, hammocks, beer, tents and a constant bass line that continued to play for five days, it was a little slice of heaven.
Here are a few snaps…
It was one of the best festivals we have ever been to and we’d just like to thank Kata and all the press team for inviting us. We’ll come back of course. This is definitely a two tiered post, there is more to come but we can’t do it now…because frankly we’re still recovering from it all and need sleep.
Over and out, TPJ xxx
