96 Pigeon House Road

by Don McNeill Healy

This project is about the humanity that exists amongst Rosie Maughan, her family and the traveling community in general. (Travelers are a minority group unique to Ireland and they face a lot of discrimination in society). I have spent over a year and half photographing the lives of the Maughan family living on Pigeon House Road.

My aim was to develop a close intimate relationship in order to capture the loving, caring nature of the family as well as the chaos that exists in their lives. This family live in difficult circumstances, however my intention was to create a new vision, a new way of seeing the obvious chaos, that is the humanity in Rosie and her family.
