Book Release – Ireland’s Guiding Lights
Cork-based aerial photographer Dennis Horgan has just published his latest book “Ireland’s Guiding Lights” which is a collection of aerial images of lighthouses around the island of Ireland. The photography took almost a year with Horgan using fixed-wing aircraft from Atlantic Flight Training Academy Cork and Waterford airports, National Flight Centre at Weston Airport and Air Surveys operating from Abbeyshrule Aerodrome in Longford.
Dennis travelled the entire coastline of the island of Ireland over a two-year period capturing stunning aerial images of Lighthouses from the iconic Fastnet Rock off West Cork to St. John’s Point in Co. Down. The photographs are accompanied by anecdotes/stories by former Irish Lights Keeper Gerald Butler who served for many years on Fastnet Rock and Galley Head Lighthouses. There is also a foreword written by Kieran Crowley, Chairman of Irish Lights. The book was produced in partnership with Astra Construction Services Ltd. and supported by Atlantic Flight Training Academy and Doyle Shipping Group.
The book is published in hardback by Red Stripe Press and is available online – www.dennishorgan.ie or from bookshops nationwide – Price €24.99.
