Passage stands in the centre of Ireland, at the crossroads of History. The Junction Where destiny and need, hope and survival intersect.

The six figures of the “Passage” are open to interpretation and projection. They can represent a lone figure, a family, a tribe, a people. The journey began so long ago in the Mesolithic era, is the one story, always told and never changing, of the march of man through time, moved by the forces of history, from ancient to modern. The journey is a hunt: for game, for food, for trade, for wealth, the instinct to survive, passed down through the millennia. (

I know that you had this one before me Alan, but I could not resist it.

Is that near Athlone?

On the Dublin - Galway road between Kinnegad and Rochfortbridge. Very unusual.

Unusual for sure Robin. Have looked through all your photos. They're great and capture the landscape very well.

Thanks Ger, I think that I need more practice to get really good photos.
