Aidan O'RourkeI'm Aidan O'Rourke, tutor, content creator, linguist and campaigner. This website presents my very varied portfolio of photographs and articles. You are looking at the new WordPress site. There is also the archived site, 2012-2014, and my Eyewitness in Manchester site 1997-2005. I campaign for local heritage and identity, mainly in Manchester but also in Liverpool. I am very dissatisfied with the policies of Manchester City Council and I am campaigning for a change in direction.
