    DESCRIPTION

    Holy Pictures captures the last vestiges of popular devotional practices once widespread in Ireland. Tony Murray’s vivid images from the late 1970s and early 1980s are a compelling record of an aspect of Irish life that has largely disappeared. By turns poignant and surreal, the photographs depict pilgrims, devotees and true believers against the backdrop of a changing Ireland. An introduction by historian Daithí Ó Corráin and interview by photo historian Orla Fitzpatrick place these important images in context.
