This collection contains a set of high quality stills extracted from a series of documentary films by Mother Goose Films. The images have been archived for the purpose of providing a large set of appealing stock photos useful to community members and tourism operators.

The documentary films focus on five Celtic port towns in Wales and Ireland that are connected and intertwined by the ferry routes that serve them. To get to know the landscape and the history, we hear from the people in the know. We meet up with several local characters and hear of their passion for the heritage and how their love for the place they call home is shaping the future.

The films were produced by Mother Goose Films and Ports, Past and Present, a project which explores the history and cultural heritage of the ports, showcasing stunning views of the landscapes and wildlife of the Irish Sea coast and revealing the human histories of the port communities. They form part of a wider tourism campaign to raise awareness of the rich coastal and maritime heritage of the five selected ports and their communities.
