Mhaigh Eo Limited Edition


Mhaigh Eo
Meaning Plain of the Yew Tree.

This tree is growing out in Lenanne, and there they call it the Fairy Tree.  When I saw it I decided that this was going to be my homage to 1916…I am part of a wonderful group of talented Artists called Craft Works Mayo, and we were asked to paint something to honour 1916.  I felt that I would be unable to do justice to some of the obvious and iconic themes of that time, hence I picked this tree. I feel it is our story in so many ways…

Standing alone…Ireland an island
Rooted in solid ground…We have always been here, we have a great history and heritage behind us
Branches Reaching Out…We have a long history of emigrating worldwide and we consistently retain our Irishness.  We always have a welcome for all who return to us, indeed we have a welcome for all who visit our beautiful Island
We as a nation have had our own troubles but we accept them and carry on…standing tall and proud
