Here is a person who has lived a full and responsible life in the world of decisions and affairs and this fact in itself has helped to form my cast of mind.


A chairde, beir bua agus beannacht,

We are confident the little volume featured on this web-site will bring pleasure to anyone who peruses its pages. Its author Gavin Corbett also took the photographs and we think you will agree he very much has an “eye” for a beautiful scene. We have followed Gavin’s writing career for many years noting how he has brought happiness to many hundreds of people and are delighted now to be publishing this his new book which is sure to be a “best seller”. Gavin has been a keen photographer since his school days and The Giving Light is a showcase for his talents as both a photographer and also of course as a writer and what better book could there be than one that has both beautiful words and pictures in it. With so much talent what next is there for Gavin to achieve? “Top of the Pops” we would wager!

Le meas,
