Plein Eire Boyne Valley Paintout-Farmleigh, Phoenix Pk, Dublin 12th Nov 2016

P.E.B.V. Sonairte, Laytown, Co Meath

Back last Saturday 30th May 2015 by popular demand to Sonairte, near Laytown, Co Meath.  A great crowd turned up, and missing from the photo are Kay Martin, Valerie Syms Martin, Phil Holfer & David Goldberg.  Hoping I left no one out!  A very cold and windy day, but there is no stopping P.E.B.V. - we paint in all weathers! 

Great to see…

Hi Caroline, sorry dI didnt notice your request until now, how's it going with all you guys?

We love Wexford but D and I really miss the troupe up country - please say hello to all, and maybe we'll get together before too long.  

Someday we will have our place a bit more sorted then we will invite 4 or five of you at a time for a weekend painting down in Wexford!
