Originally from the South of England, I now live in Co. Wicklow and work in Dublin. I started my career in advertising in London before moving to Dublin in 1979; the intended six months stay is now well into its fourth decade.
After working in several advertising agencies, I was a freelance graphic designer and illustrator before leaving the commercial sector altogether. I now express myself visually through photography.
According to the 19th century Gaelic scholar John O'Donovan, the castle was built by Eoghan Mantach Ó hEidhin in the early 16th century. It was occupied by Fiacha Ó hEidhin towards the end of the 16th century. This towerhouse is believed to have been built on or close to the site of Dúrlas Guaire the main residence of Guaire Aidni mac Colmáin, the 7th-century king of Uí Fhiachrach Aidni and Connacht. Dunguaire Castle was used as a filming location for the Scottish castle home of the main character in the 1979 film North Sea Hijack.
