Airig Fedo'It was strangely like war. They attacked the forest as if it were an enemy to be pushed back from the beachheads, driven into the hills, broken into patches and wiped out.' - Murray Morgan, 1955 The world's forests are diminishing at an accelerating rate. In anger at this destruction I set out to photograph the last of these ancient sentinels that have remained throughout the centuries. The veterans of the conflicts that have burned across Northern Ireland, they now stand separate and alone, the oldest and most notable of their kind. Like age-old beings of another world, their roots go deep into the mythology of the land.
