Connemara

In late August and early September of 2013 I spent 10 days traveling through Western Ireland with a group of photographers from the Washington, DC area, lead by master photographer Eliot Cohen. We started with three days in Connemara, County Galway. The name Connemara derives from the tribal name Conmhaicne Mara, meaning descendants of Con Mhac, of the sea. During our time in Connemara, we  travelled though peat bogs at the feet of the rugged Twelve Bens (Na Beanna Beola), walked part of the Western Way (Bealach an Iarthair), soaked up Irish music in Clifden (An Clochán), and explored the picturesque harbor of Roundstone (Cloch na Rón). I also learned to be wary of local wildlife...

Below is a selection of photographs from our time in Connemara.
