40 Shades of Green

In these days of inexpensive travel, it seems nearly everyone has been nearly everywhere – and only exciting and distant places are worth photographing. But travel is also about what we feel, people we meet and experiences, even in, especially in, our own backyard…

“Waterford, A County Revealed”, (Port Láirge, Contae nochtaithe), takes the form of a journey in a lavishly illustrated book, beginning in Waterford City. It ambles around Waterford Harbour taking in fishing ports and holiday resorts as it heads towards Ireland’s first Geopark on the Copper Coast. After pausing a-while in Dungarvan the exploration continues through the Gaelic enclave of An Rinn, then follows the Blackwater River to the lovely Lismore. From there it’s over the Knockmealdown and Comaragh mountain ranges, stopping briefly to soak in the ’40 shades of green’ and some shades of magenta, before ending at the Suir River Bridge, for a final view of the county.” “Waterford, A County Revealed”, my first book, shines a light on this almost hidden Irish county.

If you’re curious to see more, there’s a little about Dervla Murphy, octogenarian and pioneering author who penned the foreword to the book, along with a selection of pages here.
