Spectacular opening to LONDON IRISH ART 2015

Well that was a cracker ..!! The launch of the inaugural London Irish Art last night in Westminster was packed out and the atmosphere was electric. It was one of those nights that will long in the memory.

The Irish Ambassador Dan Mulhall, Minister Jimmy Deenihan, the renowned artist Hughie O'Donoghue, and London's Young Poet Laureate Aisling Fahey, all did a fabulous job in launching the event.

It was also a real thrill to share a corner with Michael Flatley who had two of his paintings hanging each side of my latest large piece 'Orage'.
