THESE PHOTOGRAPHERS HAVE put together two books illustrating the scenery, people and wildlife of Kerry and Dublin Bay

Photographer John Wesson is an Englishman who fell in love with Kerry in the 1970s and has been photographing the county for thirty years, in rain or sunshine.

Father-and-daughter team Seán and Niamh Kennedy have travelled the 30 kilometres from Howth Head to Dalkey Island in their efforts to capture the coastal life of Dublin Bay.
