Blarney Castle and Gardens, The Seven Sisters

Several images taken over the last few months of Blarney Castle have now been incorporated in the signage around the Castle. Adam Whitbourne and his team have created something very special. Their gardens and the Arboretum are among the best in Ireland and a ‘must see’ if you are a garden aficionado and if you love trees.

Recently I was invited by the Clonmel Camera Club to give a talk. It was an altogether very enjoyable evening with good attendance. I hope to see some of the members back next summer when I start my next series of workshops in Tourin House & Gardens.

Workshops and publications

My first photography workshop of 2018 took place in Tourin House & Gardens, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford on the 20th of May. All participants enjoyed the brilliant environment of Tourin House & Gardens while experiencing the exceptional hospitality of the Jameson family who -as always- prepared a beautiful lunch. A vintage car rally also visited Tourin House & Gardens in the afternoon and we were allowed to record the event for our own purposes. Pictured above is Kristin Jameson with one the impressive vintage automobiles.

In the past I have given workshops in June Blake’s garden, Jimi Blake’s Hunting Brook Garden, Tourin House & Gardens, Mount Usher, Knockrose Garden and The National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin, Dublin.

Noel Kingsbury and Jimi Blake are writing a book about Hunting Brook. Last week they selected the images for the book which will include many of my images taken over the last few years. Publication by Filbert Press is scheduled for September 2019.

Recently the OPW (Office of Public Works) published “Living Legacies” about Ireland’s National Historic Properties in the care of OPW. This publication includes images of Kilmacurragh and JFK Arboretum.
