Micheál O'Raghallaigh - Concertina Player extraordinaire, playing in the Sportsman's Bar, Strokestown.
Micheál is so expressive, both as a player and visually. No two photos of him are ever the same! He purrs like a cat when he's flying with the music, he looks to the ceiling, to the floor, to the 4 walls and scans the musicians all around him and grins with satisfaction when it's all sounding well.
I took the photographs for his first album The Nervous Man, which included photos of the late Frank McGann in who's honour the Féile is held each year in Strokestown. Micheál's a real musical genius.
Location: Strokestown, Co. Roscommon.
