I was very honoured to be asked for my photo of the  Fields of Dunquin from Mount Eagle to be displayed on the front cover of a book of selected poems by Máire Mhac an tSaoi, who is a well renowned poet. This is a beautiful book, all the poems are in English and well as Irish, and well worth a read.

The photo is available on my website http://helene-brennan.com/dunquin-fields-from-mount-eagle512

What a great privilege it was to sit and observe the beautiful colors of the late evening as the sun sets over the Islands of Great Blasket and Beginish.
