Welcome to My Ireland

I was born in Dublin and attended University College Dublin graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. After a short spell of working in London I returned to Ireland and set up an architectural practice which was very successful. After becoming a member of the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland I was elected a Fellow in 1985.
In the early 70’s the practice expanded overseas and eventually had offices in Nigeria, Sudan and Libya along with doing work in other countries in Africa.
With a strong interest in genealogy, inherited from my father, I was elected in 1992 Chieftain of Clan O’Byrne and eventually was elected Chairman of The Clan’s of Ireland.
From an early age I always painted and this I carried on all during my professional career.
In the early nineties I retired from Architecture to indulge my artistic aspirations and opened an art gallery in Bray. Probably because of my architectural background my work has been very much influenced by the urban environment of an island surrounded by water. So the vast bulk of my paintings reflect typical Irish buildings in landscapes and the many harbours around the coast of Ireland with various degrees of quirkiness relating to the nature of Ireland.
This has proven to have been very rewarding both spiritually and visually which has left me with a deep knowledge of Ireland along with a very large archive of around two thousand images of Ireland painted over a period of 20 to 30 years.
Patrons have included three Presidents of Ireland, Jane Kennedy Smith, former US Ambassador to Ireland, Dept. of Foreign Affairs for many paintings in Irish Embassies throughout the world, many other Government Departments, Private and Corporate art collectors in many countries.
I hope you will enjoy through my paintings what I have enjoyed in travelling the lenght and breath of Ireland and the privilege of recording it for posterity.
