Enda O’Flaherty is the founder of the Disused Schoolhouses blog (endaoflaherty.com). He has spent over a decade as an archaeologist in Ireland and abroad, studying the remains of settlements from the distant past. His explorations of Ireland as a wandering archaeologist gave him a wish to better understand the deep and defining importance of the interaction between people and landscape. He now focuses on more recent remains of the past, and is undertaking a PhD at NUIG examining human settlement in karst landscapes. He lives in Cork.
