'After the rain' Oils 20 x 20cm (available framed)
This is quite close to my home, the townland is Knockawaddra, Rossmore. I came across this group of derelict farm buildings while walking on a showery autumn evening. When the painting was exhibited I discovered that this farm is the home place of Jim O'Sullivan who fought and died in the Kilmichael Ambush during the War of Independence, there is a monument to him in the nearby village of Rossmore. He attended Ballinacarriga National School at the same time as my Gran Aunt!
