'Michael Collins birthplace, Woodfield' Oil on board 14" x 11"
This is a painting of Michael Collin's birthplace in woodfield, near Clonakilty in West Cork. The family home was burnt down in April 1921, the only buildings that remained were the outbuildings you see in my painting. However those buildings were the original house where Michael Collins and his siblings were born. It is now a well maintained and very tranquil site to visit, with lovely trees casting beautiful shadows when the sun comes out.
