Throughout the ages the horse has played a pivotal role in Irish society. It is a ubiquitous symbol in Ireland, present in many classic depictions of our culture, from the loyal work horse in the field to the more urban image of the horse ascending the tenement buildings in the elevator.

Over a twelve-month period, David O’Flynn has collected images of the horse in Ireland in these and some other less clichéd guises and discusses how the horse’s role in Ireland has changed and adapted to modern times. While focusing on a central theme, David O’Flynn’s has collected an incredibly diverse number of dazzling photographs, ranging from elegant show jumping shots taken at the RDS to shots of Connemara ponies taken in the wilderness.
