Christy Regan Remembered

Christy Regan - photo taken recently by his son, Enda, at Strandhill.

Boyle Camera Club would like to express our condolences to the family of photographer, Christy Regan who passed away recently after a long illness. Christy began his photographic career in the 1960s working for Michael O'Callaghan at the Roscommon Herald and contributed his images to numerous other papers about Roscommon, Leitrim and Sligo. Starting out with a Kodak 'Box-Brownie' camera, for over 40 years, Christy photographed weddings, Baptisms, First Holy Communions, Conformations, dinner dances and every form of social and public event and gathering about Boyle. Christy was thoroughly professional, quick to laugh and had an easy way about him. He passed on his great passion for the camera to his wife Mary and son Enda, who carry on the family photographic tradition in his name. Rest in Peace Christy.
