These are some more ‘out and about’ photos that Sean took when he worked briefly for the Cavan Post last June … taken in Relaghbeg House, near Bailieborough, at the launch of a charity calendar. I think Sean was very good at taking photos of people in which they showed something of themselves … even in the hustle and bustle of a busy bar.

Sean has recently missed the 21st birthday parties of his good friends Ciaran (Tunt) and Aaron F … nights he would have loved. He was missed at them.

The ones in the slideshow were taken at a charity fundraiser … some of them look a bit painful.

There were quite a few applicants for the job, but Sean did an interview with the editor and must have made an impression – he certainly had plenty of good work to show.

This weekend last year (a bank holiday weekend in Ireland) was Sean’s first in his new job. His brief was to attend the Killinkere Jamboree and various social events and Gaelic football matches, and take photographs suitable for use in the paper. Continue reading
