Ross Errilly Friary, Headford - drawn by Andy Madigan

 

This is a quick enough sketch of the ancient friary up the road from my house. We are really lucky here as we are steeped in History. The area is littered with everything from Friaries to 7th century churches, ring forts, standing stones…you name it, we have it.

Cong - Ashford Gate Lodge - drawing by Andy Madigan

 

I did this drawing from the grounds of Cong Abbey, looking out at the bridge into Ashford Castle (back/town entrance). I’ve got some great feedback about the image, and even won a prize for it from 5Pieces Gallery in Switzerland (http://www.5piecesgallery.com/). It is one I plan on making a limited edition print from, as I’ve had  a lot of requests to purchase and would rather a few got to enjoy than have to decide who to sell to.
