Boyne Valley Paintout: Clogherhead, Co. Louth at The Coffee Hut, the pier Clogherhead

June 18, 2022 from 11am to 3:30pm
This Saturday, 18th June, we meet at the pier, Clogherhead.  They say the weather will be either very hot or very cold so be prepared.  Lots to paint at the pier - boats of course, people, pier furniture, rocky headland, wild flowers, seascape with Mourne Mountains.  There is plenty of car parking spaces, and toilets.   Not sure if the coffee hut is open yet so to be safe bring your own beverages.  Follow the signs in the village to The Harbour.   See you there at 11 a.m. See More

Plein Eire Boyne Valley at the RHA Dublin

Sally, Michelle, Bernadette, Anna, Frank, Noel and Brian at the RHA today with Franks sculpture (Noel and Brian, sorry you missed the photo). A photo or words do not do Frank's sculpture justice so it is well worth a visit. The whole exhibition is wonderful this year. Kate Began's wonderful Monaghan landscape in oils stands out in the gallery too, wonderful to see in life. I am looking forward to a 2nd visit. I didnt get photos of the wonderful detail so if anyone wants to add in photos here…See More

I was only out a couple of times with the group, at Sandycove and Cabinteely a couple of years ago, but hope to do more.

Hi Norah. speaking of Second Sleep, I heard an interesting interview between Tubridy and Robert Harris the author who has just written a novel called just that. it has an interesting twist, its out on kindle and I just got it this minute. Its dystopian and I'm saying no more.

Hi Norah

you never disturbed me at all it was a pleasure to chat. I had the best time there, I have not enjoyed painting as much in a long long long time, I will definitely do more as soon as there is a paint out, I'll make sure I'm on it.
