ery. It arose from a post by Maria Doyle, originally from Ballyhack. She suggested a photo library taken of my book cover from wherever people read it. And the title of this online gallery is suggested by Maria too. Please feel free to participate by sending a photo via email or post to my facebook page or twitter page, details below. I will try to include everyone’s submission along with any description you see fit to share. I will update the content as often as time and submissions allow 🙂

|Ashling Doherty at Tappan Zee Bridge, Hudson River New York|
Ryan says “This is the Tappan Zee Bridge 30 miles north of New York City. The original iron bridge in the background built in the 1950’s now closed with the new Tappan Zee opened in 2017. I thought that appropriate and very fitting. Change everywhere”

Maria’s dad hailed from the Cross Roads Cheekpoint originally and we meat during the year on one of our local places and people tours. Her husband Jerry originally hailed from the ‘real’ capital, and he’s a genuine rebel/ Maria says “Enjoying Andrew Doherty’s book Before the tide went out takes me back to lovely times spent in Cheekpoint Waterford.Saved my book for my trip to Ramsgate Kent and the weather is lovely.”
9th November 2017 Brendan Doherty & Family.
Musician Brendan Doherty showing off his copy on Atlantic Beach Florida. Brendan grew up in Faithlegg only a mile away from here, but he has sure seen a lot of the world. Weather looks beautiful…tough life man!

Anne seems to be bringing her copy on holidays with her too…this from the Iguazú Falls, Argentina
19th November 2017 Eamonn Doolan
Eamonn sent on this interesting image from Lowestoft in England. Its the most easterly point in the UK but I think Eamonn was possibly drawing a paralle between it and the theme of my own book. Like Waterford harbour Lowestoft has evidence of one of the earliest settlements in the UK and also like the harbour it was famed for its rich fishery. Sadly now much diminished, but at least they have an oil industry…for now.
Eamonn also posted a review of my book on Facebook recently. I will leave the last words with him:

Whitehouse at Christmas time.
Ed quipped, in a swipe at the present President “Here’s a photo for your global readership gallery. My guess is that the guy living in the house behind me will prefer to wait for the film adaptation”

How Far the Tide Drifted has certainly taken me to some far off places and this week its Yamhill, Oregon. Thanks to Joan and Janet (photographed) Cosgrove for going to the bother of posting this photo. Yamhill is apparently noted for its cherry’s and sheep, here’s some extra info too https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamhill,_Oregon

Anne presenting the book to Deputy of Mission, Michael Lonergan, for the Irish Ambassador, Dan Mulhall, in Washington DC. Was hoping for an invite given that Dan is a fellow Waterford man, who knows maybe in the future!
Tomás Sullivan. 25th September 2018
Tomás Sullivan sent this along whilst working as a safety boatman on the new Barrow bridge which is crossing the river below New Ross. It was early morning, and a very calm river
Mark Baldwin 1st November 2018
Mark sent on this image of the book from Cape Town, South Africa via his brother in law Andrew Lloyd aka Bob the Scientist, a fellow blogger and home educator. I had the pleasure of Marks company previously when Deena and I did a family reunion walk for the Baldwins, organised by Andrews wife Leonie. The Baldwins had earlier lived close to Jack Meades and Knockroe and are related to the Baldwins of Passage East. No strangers to fish then!
