Brian Boru


Gilcée print of an oil painting of Moylussa, Killaloe, Co. Clare


A central bridge crosses the river Shannon and links Killaloe, Co. Clare to Ballina, Co. Tipperary.

Killaloe is situated on the eastern side of Clare, a charming and beautiful village. A central bridge crosses the river Shannon and links Killaloe, Co. Clare to Ballina, Co. Tipperary. The beauty of the lake water and famous marinas make it popular for sailing clubs and water sports. The wind can pick up quickly on Lough Derg making it an idea location for laser racing. Just upstream, a new university marina caters for the hundreds of leisure craft that make Killaloe/Ballina one of the best centers for water activities.

I have 4 paintings completed celebrating Killaloe and the fine art prints are available for purchase on this website.

  1. Sailing on Lough Derg.
  2. St. Flannan's Cathedral was A Romanesque cathedral built in the 1180s by Donal O’Brien but was destroyed soon afterwards. A new Gothic style cathedral, was completed on the same site in the 13th century.
  3. The old canal banks with it's railway lines and narrow streets provide a delightful walk through this village gives the print a vibrancy of color.
  4. Brian Boru is based the highest peak in Co. Clare, 'Moylussa'. Moylussa over looks the birthplace of Ireland's famous High King, Brian Boru. He ruled from Kincora, which is believed to have been in modern day Killaloe.

Cotton Rag Paper

The image comes with a 2 inch border for mounting into frame. The paper I use is 100% cotton with a textured surface. All the materials are acid free and I ensure that the techniques I use is based on archival methods, thereby enhancing the quality of the image.


The canvas print is rolled to protect the image integrity during posting. It is a semi glossy finish and comes with a 2 inch border for stretching. I personally write the title of the archival print and sign each one before it is packed.


I use only artist quality paints from artisan suppliers. I want to ensure that the art you buy will last a lifetime. The paper used is beautiful textured cotton heavy paper. This paper needs to be heavy to take the 30+ washes I use for building up depth and color in the watercolours. Each of the paintings are scanned and then printed onto cotton paper using archival inks. The print then is checked, so that the full color and texture is in line with fine art techniques.
