A blue-painted shop front in Castlerea. The long ridge of Benbulben Mountain swathed in cloud. Bogland rife with wild flowers. A crescent of deserted sandy beach in Connemara. The classical outlines of Westport House overlooking its shimmering lake. The "autograph tree" at Coole Park, initialled by Yeats and George Bernard Shaw. Heather, gorse, sheep and drystone walls. The Cliffs of Moher dropping dark and sheer down to the seas 100s of feet below. A roadside shrine to the Virgin freshly adorned with flowers. A lone angler casting his line into the River Boyne. The basalt columns of the Giant's Causeway, closely stacked as though by human hand. Gaily painted boats in small harbours. Sunset casting an orange light over Glenveagh Lough with the castle silhouetted on its promontory. All these images are presented and arranged by province - Munster, Leinster, Connacht and Ulster, the four ancient kingdoms of Ireland. Extended captions provide background information on the history, geography, legends, famous people, folklore or local anecdote behind the pictures.
