Book Overview

inspired generations of artists, poets, and philosophers, the seeds of Father Flanagan's virtuous life were sown. This photographic book shows the beauty of Ireland, his birthplace.

Born into a large and loving family, Father Flanagan's childhood was one of stories and songs, work and wonder. Edward was the little shepherd boy, keeping watch as sheep and cattle grazed the gentle slopes and lush valleys near the village of Ballymoe. Remarking on his rural upbringing, Father Flanagan fondly recalled a life full of beauty and loveliness.

Now, in Father Flanagan's Ireland, Birthplace of a Dream, photographer Michael Buckley's vivid and poignant images capture those pristine landscapes and ancient edifices that were young Edward's constant companions more than a century ago and which retain their unspoiled splendor today. The weathered limestone of his birthplace; the waterlogged lands where his tender hands gathered peat; the rock altars where his ancestors found spiritual sustenance; the schools where faith and fact converged; the rivers and fields where God's handiwork blossomed; and the villages where inequality and opportunity merged.

In the heart of the Irish countryside, in spaces that have inspired generations of artists, poets, and philosophers, the seeds of Father Flanagan's virtuous life were sown. This photographic journey is an illuminating and intimate look at the Ireland of the great priest's youth, the land where he lived and labored, the land where he is remembered and revered.
