Images of Ireland
"Me" by my dad George Brennan
Like most people who take photos I prefer to be behind the camera but of all the photos of me this is the one that I cherish most. My mum tells me that I had big brown eyes was admired by all the girls and spoilt rotten.
My granny Sarah Brennan
My Granny Brennan died when I was 10 but I will always remember her.
Photo of my Granda
Brennan taken with my very first camera just over 30 years ago. I
was named Owen after him. Me and him didn't always get on, I was a bit
wild and he was always worrying about something (usually about me doing
something dangerous about the place) Later on in life when his health
wasn't good he didn't like being left alone.
"Granda" by Owen Brennan
This is my favorite photo of granda because it captures perfectly how he used to sit and think about things. You don't appreciate your grandparents until after they're dead. There are just so many questions I wish I had asked them at the time, But it's too late now.
"Brown Eyed Girl" by Owen Brennan
Although this photo of my daughter Julie was taken a few years ago it's my favourite one of her. From the moment she was born she had the biggest most beautiful brown eyes you ever saw. Of our two children Julie is the one that most looks like me.
"It's Hard Being Good" by Owen Brennan
Photo of my youngest girl Elaine also taken some time ago. Elaine was always a very determined wee girl and has her own opinions about things. Of our two kids she would be most like me in nature. She is the most talented member of our family and has taught herself to play the piano. She loves reading and writing stories. She has recently gone to live in Cardiff and I miss her, she was always smiling and brought a lot of sunshine into our lives. She loves musicals and the theatre. Elaine helped me a lot with building "Images of Ireland" and has her own "Phantom of the Opera." web site.
Me, my aunt Eileen and my wife Gail
My mum's sister Eileen
was my favourite aunt and nearly every Saturday I would visit her for a wee drop of tea
and toast made with Ormeau plain bread. She was always in the best of form and put the
needs of others first. Eileen hadn't a fancy kitchen, cooker or saucepans but she made
very tasty dinners and definitely made the nicest home made vegetable soup
in all the world. She enjoyed playing tricks on people and made everyone laugh by dressing
up as a young girl at family parties.
Eileen died of cancer a few years ago and I miss her a lot.
