Project Description

Taken on a rather wet November day, with Been Hill shrouded in clouds; which is a regular occurrence here on the edge of Dingle Bay.

It is always nice to get some feedback from a customer about a picture, however this one is rather special…

Dear John

I look forward to receiving the print.

I bought a small size copy of the print ‘The Road to Kells’ In Pat’s Place, Kells last summer and brought it home to my dad in London who was born in Caherciveen not far from Kells. He really loved it.

My dad died last month and now I feel a real need to have that print up on the wall in my own home. The song ‘The Boys of Barr Na Sraide’ was sung at his funeral, and the photo seems to capture its essence:

“… and when the wheel of life runs down and peace comes over me, o lay me down in that old town, between the hills and sea, I’ll take my sleep in those green fields the place my life began. Where the Boys of Barr Na Sraide went hunting for the wran.”
