Daniel Somers

Birth location is a circumstance of fate. Spiritual home is a choice.

Daniel is a contemporary Donegal Antaeus. His inspiration and energies come especially from Inishowen traditions, people, land, sky and seascapes.

Daniel lives in the village of Strangford with his devoted wife, Breige Ellen Assumpta.
