‘In My Father’s Time’ by Seamus McGarry
Seamus McGarry is known for the tremendous work he has done in supporting the Irish Community in Britain. However, few people know about his genius behind the camera. When he got married to his wife Annette in 1962 they chose San Sebastian in Spain for their honeymoon. Seamus bought a new camera to record their time away but when he got home he found to his shock and horror that the film was all black. He promptly joined a local camera club and learned the technique of taking good photographs. Seamus has a wonderful archive of images of Ireland that we will share with you over the coming weeks. Our first photograph from Seamus was taken as he passed strangers on a bench in Ballybunion. (Notes by Sé Merry Doyle).
