Irish Folk Furniture

Tony Donoghue 08:17, Ireland

In rural Ireland old hand painted furniture is often associated with hard times, with poverty and with a time many would rather forget. In the making of this film 16 pieces of abandoned folk furniture were restored and returned back into daily use.

Tony Donoghue worked for 7 years at the Ecological Parks Trust and the Natural History Museum in London. He uses his background in both biology and film to explore rural traditions and rituals.
