Horse --- The History Press Ireland

By: Nonsuch Ireland  05/12/2011

The Horse in Irish Society

Throughout the ages the horse has played a pivotal role in Irish society. It is a ubiquitous symbol in Ireland, present in many classic depictions of our culture, from the loyal work horse in the field to the more urban image of the horse ascending the tenement buildings in the elevator.
Over a twelve-month period, David OFlynn has collected images of the horse in Ireland in these and some other less clich?guises and discusses how the horses role in Ireland has changed and adapted to modern times.
While focusing on a central theme, David OFlynns has collected an incredibly diverse number of dazzling photographs, ranging from elegant show jumping shots taken at the RDS to shots of Connemara ponies taken in the wilderness.
This book is essential for lovers of horses and for lovers of beautiful photography.
