PUBLICATIONS

All my work is based on field research and a first hand knowledge of the sites.

All publications are produced entirely within Ireland using a local print/design business.

All publications are illustrated by me with b/w studies and photographs of the monuments and artefacts.

ISLAND OF THE SHEELA-NA-GIGS

An Illustrated Guide

This is an up-date and reworking of The Divine Hag, with a number of newly discovered Sheela-na-gigs and a new view of these mysterious figures that dispels the old myths and taboos surrounding these crucially important and very sacred images.

As well as giving a comprehensive, yet readable, overview of the subject there is a complete guide, with location maps, so that the intrepid explorer can go and visit the figures in their original setting in the Irish countryside.

Also available, The Sheela-na-gigs of Ireland, an Illustrated Map/Guide ( see below)
