John Sullivan

John Sullivan

This is John Sullivan, a man we met near the beach at Allihies in West Cork a few days ago. He’s quite a remarkable man, especially as he will be 91 in June. I’ll be very happy with myself if I’m as fit and healthy as he is when I celebrate my 91st birthday!

The photo isn’t the best I could manage but I only took the one shot and wanted to share it. There was a very strong light behind him from the afternoon sun and I used the on-camera flash to fill in the shadows as best I could.

    You better believe he’s 91 and still going strong. it must be in the air but Mary his wife is even better looking at 82.

    John Sullivan just has to be related to my former parish priest Canon Micheal O`Sullivan ? who died in 1996 . The likeness is too good not to be !
