Ghosts of the Faithful Departed

I recently saw a feature on the RTÉ programme Nationwide on the work of the photographer David Creedon, and especially about one of his latest projects, the photographing of images of a forgotten Ireland, culminating in the publication of his widely acclaimed book, Ghosts of the Faithful Departed. It’s a wonderful hardback book which I purchased just before Christmas and have continuously dipped into regularly since then. Emigration and its effect on the fabric of rural Ireland is at the core of the book as Creedon captures moments in time in the abandoned and unoccupied houses of the countryside.
