“The sea water heals me spiritually, physically, and mentally – every day, however cold, I swim – sometimes alone, sometimes with a friend, sometimes with the crew. Nearly always, I emerge recharged, feeling alive and more able for my day ahead – a natural medication.” – Barry Delaney

Forty Footers features thirty photographs of Dubliners enjoying the sea at Sandycove’s famous bathing spot. Delaney’s colourful images capture the variety and vibrancy of the swimmers, sunbathers and onlookers drawn to this rocky promontory. An introduction by Rónán Hession and an accompanying poem by John O’Donnell give the collection an added depth.
