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.

A bit of history

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.
