Walking the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland on the eve of the controversial Anglo-Irish Agreement was an extremely brave, and some would suggest foolhardy, undertaking but it is one that photographer Tony O’Shea and novelist Colm Tóibín embraced with spirit for the 1987 book Walking Along the Border. 

“Working with Colm on Walking Along The Border had made me a little bit more aware of the significance of the border to local people, how it means something concrete. Where as, in Dublin, it’s something of an idea”, O’Shea tells Murmur. “I was photographing various aspects of republicanism and, rightly or wrongly, I saw it as part of it”.
