Dee Corr Forever - Ciaran McClure's "see you later" edit

Full length video featuring all your favorite Irish rippers, and dedicated to the memory of a true Belfast Legend, Dee Corr R.I.P

This is not ideal i know, but If your interested in getting a hard copy of the video i am taking donations through paypal at, all the money will go towards getting copies made, and then these would be sold and the money raised given the the Welcome Organization charity in Belfast, I do not intend to keep any of the money, so please consider a small donation once you have finished watching the video, anything you can give will be appreciated and go towards a very worthy cause.

Richard Gilligan - DIY


DIY can be described as a movement within skateboarding which operates outside civic and societal norms. Through the utilisation of skater-constructed spaces, which are ordinarily, an adaptation of existing,but often abandoned, terrain in both urban and rural settings, the modern skateboarder transcends the need to exist within a more conventional environment.
Utilising found materials, these unauthorised and often illegal temporary constructions have fascinated photographer Richard Gilligan, who has spent the past four years tracking down these ephemeral spaces throughout Europe and the US. His pictures show how skaters and DIY builders free themselves from the constraints of societal rules, creating their own domain in which to practice this peripheral pursuit.
