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.

Tynan’s is Kilkenny City’s oldest pub, having been established in 1703, albeit originally as a grocer-pharmacy. In 1919, Michael Tynan took over the premises and converted it into a bar. Its shop-pharmacy heritage is still evident today, given that even as a bar it maintained the shop-pub dual role so common in Ireland in the 20th century. The front bar, into which you enter, still is home to a host of stock drawers labelled to account for the range of supplies and medicines which they would once have held; among them noted are lemon, citron, seeds, salts, nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate, cloves and almonds.
To my mind, the bar is best experienced during daylight hours when the light streaming in the front windows gives it a special character. If you manage to get a seat in the front as the sun starts to sink but the musicians are on the rise, then you’ve found yourself a little bit of heaven by the banks of the Nore.
