IF you’re still looking for a special present for Christmas this year, then John Cleary has a special deal for his five photography books released over the past few years.

All the Tralee man’s books feature stunning images capturing life in the town and around the county in a variety of social, sporting and community settings. Now John has created a fantastic five-book box set for €80.

It features Through The Lens, the first book launched in 2016, featuring some of his extensive archive and images taken in the 1970s. This was followed in 2017 by T’was Only Like Yesterday, As Time Goes By (2018), Tralee In The Good Old Days (2019) and 2020’s Every Picture Tells A Story.

“Naturally, Tralee features prominently in my archives,” said John. “All my books are a pictorial history of Tralee, Kerry and its people. Photographs to catch the eye include GAA teams, sports images, community groups, youth groups and a mixture of images from all over Kerry.
