For Your Consideration: Gaelic Fields

at

-4-6

 

Paul Carroll, a Cork-based photographer and (full disclosure) a pal of ‘sheet cartoonist Mick Flavin, has spent the last seven years capturing “the action of Gaelic club games in unique surroundings around Ireland”.

Now he wants put the images together in one big buke.

Paul sez:

Gaelic Fields will  features the beauty of games played on the fields of Aran and Inisturk Islands, South Kerry and the Glens of Antrim to the urban landscapes of Cork, Dublin and Belfast and scores of locations in between…

Of his odyssey he adds:

…99 times out of 100 people were very nice, but wanted to know why a photographer had travelled from Cork to a Junior A football game in Dring, Co. Longford on a Thursday evening…”

A modest Kickstarter campaign [target: ten big ones] is currently active [see below] to ensure Gaelic Fields becomes a coffee table-topping reality.

    Can’t watch the vid but I hope the Wicklow pitch is in there.
    G’luck with the book – I think it’ll do well if adequately marketed.

      Have you seen the costs of getting stuff printed here?
      The labour of love ideas are always the best. Good luck.

    Why limit to gaelic fields? Could’ve included Achill Rovers pitch then which is pretty spectacular whichever side you stand on

      Why limit it to sports fields? Could’ve included the Cliff of Moher and Rock of Cashel or cats wearing hats

    *grins*

    But it came out well nonetheless (1:31-1:45).
