When Raymonde Standún set about photographing the local people of the South Connemara Gaeltacht, she quickly sensed that here were stories to be told that lay beyond the reach a camera. Unique places, unique people, a nucleus of Irish culture, its language, music and dance. Voices of Connemara wants the keep this heritage alive in pictures as well as the written word. The book contains 51 interviews among them: 
 * Martin Flaherty on the Black and Tans
 * Julia Greaney on the Fair Day at Spiddal
 * Cáit Nic an Iomaire on making her own wedding dress
 * Festy Conlon on his father’s first fife. Set against Standún’s stunning images are stories of poitín for two bob, the baker’s island-delivery boat and the trials of line fishing, alongside darker tales still vibrant in the collective memory, of landlord brutality, famine and emigration. Co-edited by Raymonde Standún and Bill Long, who also introduces the volume, here are the extraordinary voices of the ordinary people of Connemara, voices of the living as well as the dead.

Review by Shirley
I was delighted to get this book signed by the author Raymonde Standun. She is one of the family members that run the store and I was lucky to purchase it while she was there. My grandmother was mentioned in this book, so it is really special to me. It's very interesting to read stories of old Connemara, they are fascinating. (Posted on 19/06/2013)
Review by Amy
I bought this book as I really wanted to get to know the history of the people in Connemara and how they lived. A friend recommended this to me and I was delighted with it, although it's a bit on the pricey side , it was so easy to read and it has now been passed on to other members of my family so they can enjoy the tales about the people of connemara.
