As a young man Daniel McCarthy left his village of Inchigeela, in the parish of Iveleary and ended up in the United States via London. There he joined the U.S. army and started his career working with helicopters.  While in the army he was

stationed in Germany where he became interested in photography. On visits home to Inchigeela during the 1960s to 1980s he photographed family and friends – the people and places that were important to him.  Now retired, Daniel lives in Massachusetts.

This exhibition is a beautifully executed set of images which document a time, a place and a people that we sometimes fear is slipping away. The subjects obviously knew and trusted the photographer and smiled directly at him and his camera

I hope the exhibition will touch the hearts of people here in the Lee Valley and further afield.  Some of them will be seeing their younger selves, others will recognize relatives and neighbours no longer with us.

The accompanying catalogue includes many photographs with essays by Inchigeela native, Bishop John Buckley  and Sean O’Sullivan, Chairman of the Iveleary Historical Society. 

Iveleary  is part of Cork County Council’s Visual Arts programme.
