SEPA's Paintout - March 4th 2012
SEPA Photo's of this paint out:- click here
Our Paintout today, was described as a "reconnaissance mission".
Duncormick is a village that most have heard of, and driven through on numerous occasions ...but for some reason has never been present "on the radar" as a place to paint.
How nice it was to discover a little Gem, and to take some time to discover it's secrets.....
The main street though short, has a timeless quality,with interesting old houses, and pubs. At the end of the village, there's a short walkway, which gives a good view to the river and bridge.
We were informed that there is a canal about a mile up the road, with some nice bridges, Cullenstown Beach , is also close by....
Pictured here are, Michael McGuire, Sam (John) Sinnot, Local publican and farmer, (who was extremely generous with his local knowledge, and time), and Mary Hickey (sorry Mary..only half of you).
I'd describe Duncormick as a small village, with a big heart..
Definitely one to return to !!
Thanks to all who came with such short notice. Jane Meyler, Michael McGuire, Tony Robinson, Anne Cahill, and particularly Mary Hickey , on her first paint out, who traveled from Kilkenny City....
