IRELAND 1979
Photographs by Michael Hyatt
DESCRIPTION & SAMPLE PHOTOS

I went to Ennis, Ireland in May 1979 for the Fleadh (pronounced "flah"). Fleadh is the annual festival of traditional Irish music. I wanted to attend the festival first and then hitchhike around the island during the rest of my one month stay. Due to unforseen circumstances I missed most of the festival but got to go to Tralee instead where I met a member of Ireland’s all-women punk rock band The Boy Scouts. Over Guinness I learned a lot about the new punk music scene emerging in Ireland and England. I also met new friends that I stayed with at the end of my visit who took me to the 11th Century Franciscan Monastery in nearby Ardfert. Traveling north I discovered this cemetery and round tower on a very cold and stormy afternoon. Later on during the trip I spent election day in Bandon where M. Tobin is both bar owner and undertaker. Email Michael for more info.
