Adare and Beyond (2008)
Returning to Adare and West Limerick, I realised how this village, and its surrounding
landscape, called to mind evocative and beautiful memories from my past. Among those
memories were grazing cattle, the heavy rich soil and the distant haze of the Golden Vale.
The distinctive architecture of Adare village instilled a sense of appreciation for a
time when life was of a much slower pace. These memories brought with them a sense of
the tangible nature of place, and particularly the tactile relationship connecting the
environment with its inhabitants.
