Abandoned: Haunting snapshots of a life once lived in rural Ireland

This is the latest series of snaps featuring an abandoned Irish property from photographer Donal Moloney.

PHOTOGRAPHER DONAL MOLONEY, who spends his time sneaking around abandoned homes across the country and capturing their chilling beauty, has brought us some new treats this week.

This small house in the Limerick countryside has been abandoned for many years and it looks as though time has stood still since its last owner left.

Coats are still hanging on the coat rack, a pair of shoes remains by the bedside and a newspaper from the 90s lies on the floor next to an armchair, totally untouched.
