Ireland; The Parting Glass book, "a collection of images celebrating a fond farewell to the land of our fathers. It captures the end of an era, documenting a way of life that slipped away in the twilight of the last century; a toast to the memory of lost Ireland...a parting glass. Richard describes his work as a labour of love, the book includes 126 beautiful photographs; some of his best images taken over a period of more than thirty years. The accompaying test recalls memories of his own hear-breaking departure from Ireland at the age of fifteen, the death of his mother, and a moving account of his early childhood."

"In the trail of life's journey we are driven by links that unearth our hidden attachment to the past, we occasionally stumble on pivital moments that deeply affect the way we are, and the road we must travel. Fragments of our past are scattered all around us, along the roads of Ireland. "
