Colman Doyle: Ábhar Machnaimh

Colman Doyle, as lead photographer for The Irish Press, was Ireland’s chief eyewitness, working for a paper which, at its peak, was selling a million copies a week.

This film follows Colman as he returns to remote West Kerry, to reconnect with the people and places he first photographed over 50 years ago. In undertaking this journey, we explore the decades of change, across the island, captured in Colman’s unique and extraordinary work.
