PHOTOGRAPHER and journalist Siobhan English hasn’t moved too far from Carrick On Suir, Co Tipperary, where she grew up and where her parents still reside, to Dunlavin, Co Wicklow, where she now lives. However, there were many miles travelled between times.

Siobhan has also met some very interesting people along the way including in her early years when, aged eight, she learned to ride on the farm of Paddy Clancy of Clancy Brothers fame. She then progressed to Kennedys Riding School where among her fellow pupils were Kevin Babington and Anne-Marie O’Brien (then Crowley).
