21/01/19 - The Fisher King

1990 Circuit Of Ireland Rally
The years don't be long passing by but it's hard to believe that it's 18 years since the accident that claimed the lives of Bertie, Mark and Emma Fisher.
There is no doubting the immense legacy that Bertie left behind in the rallying world with some fantastic displays of driving across the stages of Ireland and beyond.
His firm, Fisher Engineering was involved in some of the largest building projects in Ireland , building large parts of the  Intel plants, the Dundrum Town Centre, National Convention Centre, the 3Arena, whilst they also built the Waterfront Hall and Victoria Square in Belfast.
I was very lucky to be involved in photographing rallies during the late 80s and early 90s.
Here are some of my favourite shots of Bertie & Rory Kennedy.
