Gary Mc Parland

When I finally decided to start the book, I trawled through literally thousands of photographers and photographs for a shot of Ballymacdermot, Killeavey. After hours of searching, I finally found it, mystical and breath taking, by the photographer Gary Mc Parland.

Gary is a very talented and unassuming person and I am delighted that Gary is the lead photographer in the book contributing over 22 stunning photographs, his bio below testament to his imagination, skill and passion. Please have a look for yourself on Gary’s website at; and follow him on facebook
