Tapestry of Light – Ireland’s bogs and wetlands as never seen before
Poetry by John Sheahan
Tina Claffey is a nature photographer with a love for Ireland’s bogs and wetlands. Her stunningly beautiful images reveal the commonplace as something new and exotic. For almost 10 years, she lived and worked in pristine wilderness areas in Botswana, and this experience awakened an appreciation of the natural world of her home country. Tina’s observations and unique perspective of the flora and fauna of the unspoilt raised bogs and wet woodlands of the Irish midlands are celebrated in her new book Tapestry of Light – Ireland’s bogs and wetlands as never seen before.
This hard back, 156 page, highly illustrated and beautifully designed book will be a quality gift for corporate and private exchange and will ensure that the receiver will never view the boglands in quite the same way again.
The story of Derrygimlagh is one of the most compelling, yet little known, international stories of the 20th century. A blanket bog near Clifden, at the very edge of the European continent, was the setting of two outstanding technological achievements of early modernity.
Connemara & Aran is the follow-up to Walter Pfeiffer’s very successful book Connemara & Beyond. Full colour throughout with a new collection of evocative and stunning photographs of Connemara, south Mayo and the Aran Islands, with landscapes like no other and here is the book to match it. The book also includes poetry by highly acclaimed Irish writers both established and emerging poets with strong association to and with Connemara.

Galway 101 Interesting facts is a fascinating insight into the people, places, culture and events that make Galway such a unique county.
Poetry by Mike Harding
“All linked the lights and stories fill this bay, until at last the sea lets up its catch and there I stand Agog, watching the smiling ghosts of all the days Talking and walking on the all forgiving strand.”
A beautiful book to prompt a stroll or a keepsake from the Letterfrack Poetry Trail and Connemara National Park

A Journey Across Years
By: Tom Mongan
This Book takes us on a journey across the years; pre-electricity days and nights growing up behind the Twelve Bens of Connemara in a thatched cottage, with the Atlantic Ocean coming up to touch a field of wild flowers just in front of the house.
Front cover: An artist work by Joe Boske.
