Unframed prints come in a double mount with backing board in a sealed cellophane display bag so that all that is needed is the glass and outer moulding.
They can also be shipped with just the protected print itself rolled up in a heavy cardboard tube if preferred. Just drop me a message if so.
Museum quality art prints using archival inks created from my original canvas oil painting. I photograph and print these limited editions of 200 myself and the prints are available in three sizes both framed and unframed.

'A drinking pub with a music problem' reads the logo on the T Shirts worn by the staff and a mantra that describes this old gem still hanging on surrounded by modern developments of glass and concrete.
A recent oil painting where I hope you can step into the vibrant world of The Cobblestone, Tom Mulligan's haven of traditional Irish music and culture. For five generations, the Mulligan family has been the heartbeat of Irish music, with roots far back in memories. Tom's pub, a testament to laid-back warmth and familial camaraderie, stands as a living monument to the cherished traditions of music and cultural respect.
Nestled in the historic Smithfield, one of Dublin's oldest neighbourhoods, The Cobblestone is just a stones throw from the Luas stop and a leisurely fifteen-minute stroll from the city center. This is more than a pub; it's a sanctuary where one can listen to the soulful notes of Irish music echo through its walls.
Every day of the week, the bar hosts sessions led by some of Ireland's finest musicians, including Tom's brother, the esteemed uilleann piper Néillidh. These sessions are not mere performances; they are living traditions, a passing of songs, tunes, and skills that breathe life into the rich heritage they represent. At The Cobblestone, everyone is not only welcome but encouraged to become a part of this musical legacy.
In The Cobblestone Backroom Venue, a world of diverse entertainment unfolds. From Na Piobairí Uilleann's captivating performances on the first Tuesday of each month to a myriad of events such as gigs, sessions, classes, talks, and more, the Backroom buzzes with cultural vibrancy. Wednesdays come alive with the Balaclavas session, where Tom's daughter Síomha and the talented fiddler Jacqui Martin teach Irish music to those who may be shy about playing in the front bar.
The Backroom, with its intimate ambiance, is also available for hire at a reasonable cost, making it a perfect venue for special occasions. Whether you join Tom, the soulful singer and fiddler Mick O’Grady, or the many other skilled musicians who frequent this corner of Dublin, you're invited to immerse yourself in the authentic atmosphere of a true Irish bar. Drop by, savour a pint, and become a part of the living tapestry that is The Cobblestone.
