Description

John Hall has travelled to traditional horse fairs, steam rallies, religious ceremonies, fleadhs and festivals around Ireland over the last few years and has captured these wonderful, candid, black-and-white photographs of people engaged in traditional activities and pastimes in a manner little changed since the 1950s,1960s and 1970s. He shows that the traditional ways have not yet vanished.It is a valuable photographic record of a uniquely Irish way of life that is rapidly being swallowed up by the trappings of modern living, and will soon be lost to future generations. This book awakens nostalgia, records what it means to be uniquely Irish and captures our cultures and traditions.
