‘Around Ireland’ is a beautiful hardback book. Featuring fifty oil paintings, plus sketches & drawings by artist Eoin Mac Lochlainn. A descriptive & historical text accompanies the images. A colourful book, which is a great travel and historical guide. A real treasure of the landscape of Ireland.
Dublin artist Eoin Mac Lochlainn spent fourteen years travelling around Ireland. He has painted the landscape north and south. Eoin has painted many of Ireland’s most beautiful, interesting and hauntingly desolate locations.
In a family collaboration, literary brother Cóilín Mac Lochlainn researched Eoin’s artistic travels. He has drawn together historical, cultural, environmental and local facts. This has resulted in a captivating and detailed narrative for both the paintings and Ireland in general. Going back to the ancient Celts and up to present day, this narrative includes real ‘gems of folklore’ from across the whole of Ireland.
