Since putting up this post there has been widespread local, national and even international interest in my pictures of the hotel. The people of Dromahair were shocked to see a much loved local listed landmark in such a state. Numerous comments were left on the post expressing concern and also thanks. Many comments were from people who had got married at the hotel over the years; my favourite comment read 'we know the price of everything and the value of nothing'.

It has been really interesting to see the reaction to my post about the Abbey Manor. My aim as an artist is to be like a mirror, to show things that are right there, but may not always be obvious. What I see from the widespread reaction to my pictures is that the Abbey Manor Hotel is special to many, many people. It is great to see people group together to try and do something practical about it. It will not become another victim of the recession.
