My intention is to keep adding to the collection. I’m constantly out sketching and drawing this fascinating country of ours and I hope in time to have a poster for each county, north and south and for most of the larger towns in between.

Blackrock Diving Tower is an iconic structure on the Salthill promenade and used in all weathers by all ages. A springboard was erected in 1885 on the property of a Col O’Hara, much to his displeasure. He did everything he could to make it difficult for swimmers to get to the rock, but eventually the Urban council took out a lease establishing the right of way to the bathing spot.
After a diving accident in 1942, the boards were replaced by the diving tower that we see today. For a long time, Blackrock was a ‘men only’ bathing place. In the very early seventies, women began to swim at the facility, and it has been a ‘mixed bathing’ place ever since.
