Ghosts of the faithful departed - David Creedon

These are so beautiful and haunting. Check out the book
Between 2005 and 2007 David Creedon photographed many of the abandoned, derelict houses to be found throughout Ireland, whose owners had fled, mainly due to dire poverty during the 1950s, leaving an unmarried family member behind to maintain the property’s upkeep or run the farm. When in turn they passed away, ownership was usually passed to far-flung relatives. Now, in a new millennium, these houses lie deserted, awaiting the return of owners whose dreams of coming home may never be realised.
