This online gallery shows some of my paintings, mainly of Strangford Lough which is situated in Co Down in the North East of Ireland, its ancient Irish name of Lough Cuan, means Loch of the Harbour's.
Co Down’s rich and varied history, from its Bronze Age past to the arrival of St Patrick, who is believed to have landed in Lecale in 432 AD and where later many of the wealthy Christian Monasteries that dotted its shores and islands of Strangford Lough, were plundered by the Norse Vikings in the 9th and 10th centuries.
By the 12th century Norman Knights fought Irish chieftains for possession of the rich and verdant land that surrounds Lough Cuan and this fight for possession continued through to the 16th century plantation of Ulster.
You can read about some of the myths associated with Ireland and Co Down and Strangford Lough.
