Old Houses around Galway

Driving around Galway I’ve noticed a large amount of old, abandoned houses. Many of them are on the same grounds where the owners have built newer homes. Some appear to be in the middle of nowhere, hidden from the road behind a veil of overgrown trees.

As a project I decided to photograph a selection of the old, abandoned houses nearby Lackagh, where I live. This is the collage that I created; the first five houses are between Turloughmore and Abbeyknockmoy, the sixth on the N17 near Claregalway, the next two near Carnmore Cross and the last in Lackagh.

    Great photo collage. Like how you captured that sleepy quietness of abandonment but still they all hint at having their own story and history.

    Great photos. I especially like the one with the sheep grazing outside the front door
