Thanks to all who have replied.

Picked up a copy of two of the books mentioned. They are excellent books and would definitely recommend them.

Two books were "Irish Travellers Tinkers no More" by Alen MacWeeney.
Also picked up a 2nd hand copy of Jill Freedmans "A Time That Was". Got Jills book for around 8 euro including delivery :-) absolute bargain and the pics are class

Thanks again all. Have a lot of names that I will slowly get through searching on the web over the next while

Cheers

Are there any Irish photographers that are historical that might have files on the web going back to the early 20th century up until maybe 1930? Maybe news photographers that have covered events. I'd like to see portraits of famous Irish people going back that far.

The National photographic archive is a great place to start.

Neil still shoots film but the web does no justice to his images

Thank you Struan for that mention of Rachel Brown. I had never heard of her, but her photo's look wonderful.

Cheers

For anyone interested in the history of photography in Ireland I would like to recommend "Photography in Ireland, The Nineteenth Century" by Edward Chandler published in 2001. Eddie is a long standing member of Dublin Camera Club and is considered to be one of the most knowledgeable people on the history of photography.

Cheers

Brendan Murphy, photographer for 'The Irish News'

His book 'Eyewitness' is well worth a look http://cain.ulst.ac.uk/images/photos/murphy/murphy03.htm

and, I don't want to embarrass anyone, but there are some very talented Irish photographers around this site...

A bit late to this party, but surprised no one mentioned Carsten Krieger:

http://www.carstenkrieger.co.uk/

Based on his biography he is German but now living in Clare.

I've been out to Loop Head and the area once to shoot and stumbled across his site after I had shot out there. Both times to Ireland I've been inspired to shoot more. I need another trip (by myself) to head out into the Wicklow hills and up to Donegal and Mayo.

Please don't crucify me for saying this but most of the photographers linked are average at best, having said that I know its about who you personally respond to, just think their are some fantastic photographers working today far far superior to some linked here. For one John Durcan, his exhibition in Temple Bar at the moment is definitely worth a view, its contemporary, timeless, technically superb and meaningful.

Do you mean John Duncan? i.e. this guy (http://www.johnduncan.info/index.html)

Where his exhibition on? Not the Gallery Of Photography I don't think ...

This is the guy, the exhibition is called bonfires.

http://www.templebargallery.com/2009Programme/0902duncanj.htm

Again, it is all subjective, the exhibition did nothing for me whatsoever.

Deirdre O Callaghans 'Hide the Can' is worth a gander
as is 'The Irish;a photohistory' by Sean Sexton & Christine Kinealy
