Visit Jill’s website to be reminded of her important books and images. And, visit www.irelandever.com, the website for her seventh and most recent book of the same name published by Abrams, with introductions by her old pals the McCourt brothers, Frank and Malachy. Jill Freedman says the book is, “a love poem: a celebration of the beauty of the land, the warmth of her people, the simplicity of the old ways and traditions, the humor and conviviality, the sharp wit and black moods, the kindness.”
Malachy McCourt sums it up best when he writes, “Any collection of Jill’s photographs, indeed any one of her works should be treasured and proudly displayed.”
