Róisín O’Farrell is exhibiting at Killarney Art Gallery in Main Street, Killarney, at the moment. 

We adore this evocative piece from her, it’s called Say Yes and it’s 600 x 600mm and could be all yours for €1,950. The artist says her work is influenced by a sense of home. 

“How I paint is as important to me as what I paint. Certainly light, colour and texture are critical elements”. 

We’re all saying yes to this, Róisín. www.killarneyartgallery.com or 087 2767999 for more information.
