I put out a “model call” on the Land Rover Owners Irleland (LROI) facebook page and Sean contacted me within a few minutes. He was keen to meet up, have some photos taken of him and his Land Rover and share some stories of his relationship with Sieux (pronounced Sue) his lady Land Rover.

Sean drove from Dublin to meet me in Bunclody on a pretty windy crappy day. I jumped in his Landy and we drove up to Mount Leinster (it’s really just a hill) for the photoshoot. On the way up we spoke about when he got his Landy, why he liked the Crew Cab defender and why she was called Sieux. We also spoke about the work he had done on his Landy and of course the one memory that stands out above all… It’s involves a brand new sump guard, speed and a nose dive.

You’ll have to wait for the book to read the story and to see the amazing pic that we selected from the shoot.
