Way of life: Alice Molloy, pictured on her suckler farm near Shillelagh, Co Wicklow, says of farming, 'it's a way of life that I won’t be stopping'

UK-based cardiologist Dr Des Sheridan decided to go back to his roots last year when he embarked on a creative journey to capture the diverse range of images that represent female farmers.

The journey transported him to counties Carlow and Wicklow, a region he is well acquainted with having grown up in Baltinglass before his family moved to the UK after he started secondary school at Ballyfin Demesne in Co Laois. Des later studied medicine at Trinity College, where he met his wife Jacqueline.
