Ollie O’Flaherty – Big Wave Surfer

Ollie Surfing Mullaghmore

An Ode to Ollie O Flaherty – Today we celebrate the Birth of the man, the myth, the Legend, the Fla. For manys a year Ollie has been surfing in Lahinch and calling us Lahinch Lads into waves and raising the standard of surfing in the town. Recently Ollie’s talent has been recognised globally with an XXL nomination. It’s great to see Ollie get acknowledged for the work he has put in. While us boys are on the sauce down in the  pub, Ollie is training hard, although he does like to venture down town occasionally for a sneaky mi-wadi and a sniff… perhaps even a Kopparberg if he’s feelin’ wild. Ollie will be trundling across the Atlantic very soon for the Billabong XXL awards where he will hopefully win an award for surfing a wave almost as big as his ego!(joks, lols)

We wish Ollie the best of luck at the awards and do Lahinch proud! Go Big, Come Home!
