The little stream, of no particular renown, continues tumbling down the slope towards the sea as it has done for thousands of years. Here, in the shaded valley carved over time by the action of water continuously flowing and falling, we find lots of mosses, lichens and bryophytes.
Seen throughout the year, the Irish hare is most visible in the spring months when it leaps and bounds, twists and turns, flashing across the green fields of the Irish countryside as seen in this image. The Irish hare Lepus timidus hibernicus is a distinct subspecies of the mountain hares found all over the top of the northern hemisphere. All…
If you happen to find yourself walking around Dublin you might have a look around Anne's Lane just off South Anne Street in the city centre. Here, outside a bar called Zozimus you will find the structure suspended between you and the sky.
The Irish pub, scene of many a good evening but traditionally not on Good Friday one of only two days of the year when pubs are not allowed to open in Ireland - until now. 2018 sees the end of the ban on pubs opening on Good Friday due to the amendment of a law from 1927.
Sometimes the early morning just gives more than you expect. Making the effort to get out early for sunrise makes a lot of sense, especially on the east coast of Ireland. On this occasion I knew the tide would be out giving the opportunity to get a wet sand foreshore that will reflect the sunrise sky's brightness and vivid colours…
The coastline of Ireland comes in many different forms - the sandy beaches with turquoise waters, rocky headlands and coves, pebbles and stones. All of these elements make up the ever changing and ever beautiful coast of the Emerald Isle. Here I made this image from a visit to the north coast, the rocky peaks just offshore look a little…
It has been a strange old winter and early spring here in Ireland. We have had a few storms and lots of snow, now it's time for some green as we enter the Irish spring. Here an image of shamrocks, one of the famous symbols of Ireland in an Irish spring, with fresh raindrops after a light shower with sunshine…
Dublin's Four Courts reflected in the River Liffey. Dublin's Four Courts hasn't looked like this in a while, bound by scaffolding. Seen here with reflections in the River Liffey at sunset. Dating to the end of the eighteenth century, it was begun by architect Thomas Cooley and finished by James Gandon. The buildings were extensively destroyed in 1922 before being…
This is a door that I have photographed often, having featured in my first book Portrait of Armagh. It is the entrance door to Saint Patrick's Church of Ireland Cathedral in Armagh, Ireland's ecclesiastic capital. The snow that fell during the Beast from the East and Storm Emma was quite surprising, unlike anything in recent years and it added to…
A few weeks ago I was hiking in the Irish mountains covered with snow and thought to myself that this is probably the last time until the end of the year that I will be able to photograph snow. Not that snow is impossible to have in Ireland, at high ground especially snow may last into April.
