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…

Holy Saturday ... When the Grief -- and the Hours -- Seemed Eternal

Is Romantic Ireland Dead and Gone?

Well, you just have to listen to Davy Spillane's music before you answer my question. Here's a short video that I created of my recent solo exhibition in Áras Éanna on…

My Family History of Working With Wood

I trace my wood crafting roots right back to my great-grandfather, David who was a joiner in Harland and Wolff during the building of the RMS Titanic.  My grandmother, Sarah, was witness to the great celebrations at the ships launch in May of 1911.  

The family's bond to the…

Pillaging, Treachery and Art Exhibitions at Dunamaise

The Rock of Dunamaise - my cousins tell me that they used to go on picnics there in the old days and, if you knew the place, you’d understand why. It’s not that high, maybe 50 metres or so above the Midlands plain - but it’s got a ruined castle on the top! Such an exciting place for…

Growing up Mexican and Irish, as well as Sicilian had its moments of light and shade. All three are a family-based culture so there was a great emphasis placed on family, loyalty, culture and history. Growing up in the Desert Southwest within a 45 minute drive of the Mexican border also brought about an acute awareness.

I…

PAINTING 'MOTHER IRELAND' American artist Edmund Sullivan tells how Ireland has come to dominate his work

Landscape artist Edmund Sullivan, whose work since 1976 has focused on Ireland, is often mistaken for an Irish native, but the former Marine, in his own words, has "9,000 years of Irish red blood ... flowing through my American veins." He is the first American painter in history to focus his life's work on Ireland, and returns there often. In an exclusive, 3-part series, Sullivan relates how he came to turn his artistry to…
