The circus people depicted in these photos were part of a range of cultural groups that travelled the length and breadth of Ireland and much further beyond our shores. These photos hark back to a more innocent era. The spectacles they presented permeated the lives of young and old and linked the generations in a way that nothing does today. These haunting black-and-white images record a world that was disappearing and being renewed at the same time. They capture what could have been lost forever as the circus moved between one place and the next, between the past and the present, on its never-ending journey.
