Irish Images FILM was set up with support from Wexford Local Development. I have worked as a press photographer on the European Tennis tour and also at the Crucible in Sheffield at the World Snooker for leading newspapers. I have worked on video events in Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, and Portugal.
I had a book published (with Lucy Costigan) in 2010 by the Irish History Press called ‘Strangest Genius: The Stained Glass of Harry Clarke’. This book was shortlisted for Best Irish-Published Book of the Year 2010, and shortlisted for the Book of the Decade (Dublin Book Festival, 2016).
In 2015 ‘The Harry Clarke Colouring Book’ was published by the History Press, based on our images from ‘Strangest genius’.
Former Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, presented one of our Harry Clarke images to the Pope in the Vatican. The framed canvass was inscribed as follows: “From the Nativity Window by Harry Clarke, St. Patrick’s Church, Kilmaine, Co. Mayo. Presented to His Holiness Pope Francis by Enda Kenny, TD, Taoiseach of Ireland, November 28, 2016.”
