Guest Speaker - John Kelly

John Kelly is an evocative and original multi award-winning photographer. As staff photographer with the Clare Champion for over thirty years, he has chronicled the life and times of County Clare over that time; his unique photographs scratch beneath the surface of everyday activity within the
county. John is completely self taught.

Kelly's photographs have appeared in many publications and his work backboned
the acclaimed publication, The Scattering. For this
project, Kelly travelled to England, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand and
Papua New Guinea to record the story of those who left
Clare for further fields.
