Way back in the early 1980s, I visited County Waterford for the first time while on assignment to photograph the annual report for Waterford Co-op in their Dungarvan Creamery, now the site of the present shopping centre. With the serious commercial photography complete, I took a couple of days to explore and photograph the county. It’s beauty and heritage made a lasting impression.
Some 25 years later we settled in a clifftop house near the pretty seaside village of Bunmahon, once famous for its 19th century copper mining industry. Remnants still remain and form an integral part of the Copper Coast Geopark. That and the charm of the broader county inspired me to write “Waterford, a County Revealed”, self-published in 2018. Just click on the book cover for further information.
Retirement in Spain, has presented the opportunity for further writing. My second book “Flights of Fantasy” has taken several years, lots of research and a number of re-writes. But now it’s written, with my publisher and scheduled to hit the shops this year. You can read all about it here
