A Ranger’s View

“A Rangers View – Killarney National Park”

In 1980 Peter O’Toole started working in Killarney National Park and recently retired after 40 years’ service. Killarney House and Gardens will be hosting a collection of his works in an upcoming exhibition entitled “A Rangers View – Killarney National Park”

Launching on Saturday 30th November @ 7.00PM

 

I regard myself as very fortunate working as a Conservation Ranger in a place which I have a deep passion and interest in.

Several years ago I took up landscape photography and this has given me the opportunity to capture the beauty of Killarney throughout the seasons of the year.

All my images are taken in the area of Killarney National Park and I have found that my accumulated knowledge of the park, along with the use of my boat allows me to view and capture Killarney’s beauty from a different perspective.

From an early age I had a love of the natural world. I grew up in a time with few modern day distractions and so my free time was spent out in the natural world. Fishing the River Deenagh, searching for bird nests and exploring Killarney’s landscape.

My grandfather and father introduced me to Killarney’s lakes where I fished for brown trout and salmon.

This experience in particular brought me closer to the natural beauty of Killarney National Park.
