|RTE TV Today Show with Maura & Daithi book review
"It's a beautiful book, old photographs of Ireland, they are absolutely fantastic."
"...choosing to focus on simple traditions and ways of life, some of which have long been abandoned. Dark Ireland: Images of a Lost World borrows its title from Patrick Kavanagh's famous poem, focusing on the back roads of Ireland and the everyday lives of rural people."
Business Post magazine
"Paint it Black---A new book by master photographer Richard Fitzgerald feels through the darkness of a disappeared Ireland"
"...a record of the unique aspects of Irish life that have almost disappeared."
|Irish Examiner newspaper
"The images in his book Dark Ireland: Images of a Lost World , capture the unique landscape of Ireland but they are also intimate portraits of the inhabitants of that landscape as they worked, played and prayed."
|Irish World newspaper
"The photo collection focuses on the back roads of the countryside, and records intimate moments of people in their cottages and farms. Nuns, Rosary-nights, confessions, coffins and currachs are captured along with horse-fairs and peat harvesting"
|The Irish Catholic newspaper
"Richard Fitzgerald has spent a lifetime looking through his camera lens with a dedicated eye."
|Dungarvan Observer newspaper
"In his enchanting book, the dimly-lit rooms of Ireland prior to the arrival of electricity are eloquently remembered. The result is a unique album which is both compelling and graceful; a fond tribute of an earthier time and place."
