Mrs Maura Hennessy – Making Bread

I took these images of Mrs Hennessy, from West St,Callan Back in 2007 for a photography exhibition in the town.

She was a big friend of Joe my brother in law, who runs a local shop. We asked if she would let us take these pictures and I think she truly enjoyed them being taken.

The images played a big part in the exhibition and she came to the opening evening.

Sadly she passed away a little time ago, the local news paper published the following comments Callan Mourns . The family placed one of the photo’s on her coffin during the funeral service.

So here’s to you Mrs Hennessy, I hope your still busy making bread, at rest but most probably still busy !!!
