Amanda Clarke has been a teacher, associate researcher at Leicester University and sometime tutor with the Royal Shakespeare Company. She has an MA in Museum and Gallery Education.

Since blowing into West Cork, Ireland twenty years ago, she has had time to develop her enthusiasm for walking, photography, folklore and holy wells. She has spent seven years seeking out, visiting, recording and researching the holy wells in County Cork and this book is a distillation of her work.

Peter Clarke is a graphic designer and educator who spent most of his career in Warwickshire Museum; as a lecturer in Leicester University and as a consultant with Area Museum Services in the West Midlands and South West England.

Since moving to West Cork, he has developed websites, hiked and sketched his way around several of the National Trails in Ireland and been the Well-Hunter’s assistant. He is responsible for the layout and production of Amanda’s book.
