Early one morning in July 2017 while travelling through County Fermanagh in Ireland I stopped off just a few miles outside Belcoo to photograph Margaret Gallagher’s cottage. Unexpectedly the lady herself was already up and about attending to chores. I hope she didn’t mind the scruffy stranger in the distance waving his camera about running off a few shots of her charming home. Had it been later in the day I’d have said hello.
I’d recently seen Miss Gallagher in an excellent BBC film produced by John Callister around 25 years ago. To watch it yourself click on the smaller image above.
