Shane McCoy and Colin White jointly published Native Irish Dogs with Currach Books in 2015.
Shane McCoy holds a degree in literature and Celtic Civilisation, along with a Masters degree in Literature and Publishing from the National University of Ireland, Galway.
As a publishing professional, a keen dog enthusiast, a lover of Irish history, and with an academic background in Celtic mythology, the author has lovingly collected and compiled information, factual and mythological, about native Irish dog breeds
Colin White has worked in the publishing industry for six years on a number of projects with many companies, large and small.
For this project, he traveled the length and breadth of the country, and the avid photographer managed to capture images that convey the beautiful nature of Ireland’s nine outstanding native dog breeds.
