“High Shelves and Long Counters” – the story of Irish shops… #Donegal #images #stories #ruralireland

For a number of years, photographer Heike Thiele and writer Winifred McNulty from Blissberry Farm Mountcharles have captured images and stories from the last traditional shops in the North West of Ireland. Their journey – across Donegal, Leitrim, Tyrone, Fermanagh, Sligo and Cavan -has taken them through an Aladdin’s Cave of drapery and hardware, to abandoned creameries and shops where empty shelves are filled only with the stories of different times. Based on a series of highly successful exhibitions across the North West, this book is a highly visual record of the stories of changing face of rural Ireland.
