Reliving the 'Magic' at Pearse's Cottage in Connemara

photo of Piaras F. Mac Lochlainn at Rosmuc

My mother (God rest her) must have taken this photo. It was in Connemara and they were on their honeymoon… It was a long time ago, but we still had a copy in a dusty old photo album at home in Ranelagh. It was lovely to see it projected onto the gable end of Pearse’s Cottage in Ros Muc last weekend.

It’s a long story. But maybe today, I’ll just tell you about the short film that I produced as part of my artist’s…

Searching For My Great Grandmother's House in Donegal

Tinteán Tréigthe no.19, oil on canvas, 2016

Now if you’re searching for your great grandmother’s cottage in the country, you can follow the map to a certain extent, but, in the end, you just have to ask someone. So, after driving a crooked mile up a crooked mucky roadeen, searching for the dot beside the ‘S’ of…

Dear Kelly,

Go raibh míle maith agat. Thank you for your message. I am an artist, and I have a blog called Scéalta Ealaíne. Basically it's stories about the Irish art scene and other musings about art (sometimes in Irish but more often in English)  but I was very interested to connect with the Wild Geese Community because I'm working on a body of artwork about Irish Emigration. More specifically, I have been painting old empty fireplaces in abandoned houses in Co Donegal. ( see here for example:  http://emacl.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/see-the-northern-lights-in-co-donegal-this-december/ ) Anyway, it's nice to make contact with you and I look forward to hearing more, slán go fóill, eoin
