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.

A4 or A3 Poster of Killiney – Villages of Dublin
Printed 250g/m² art print paper
Artist: Roger O’Reilly
The village of Killiney takes its name from Leinin, a local chieftain who with his seven daughters converted to Christianity, and subsequently went on to found a monastic community, taking the usual vow of poverty at it’s foundation. Poverty has been out of favour in the area for quite some time, although the obelisk on top of Killiney Hill records the famine of 1741 and the relief works made for the poor which also include the many walls which cover the top of the hill. Today, the area is home to some of Ireland’s most celebrated luminaries such as Bono and the Edge from U2 and Enya who resides at the splendidly named Manderlay Castle. The coastal areas of Killiney are often compared to the Bay of Naples in Italy and this is reflected in the names of surrounding roads, like Vico, Sorrento, Monte Alverno, San Elmo and Capri.
