Superb Original 1916 Painting by Artist Supreme Tony Barrett

We extend sincere thanks to Artist Supreme, Tony Barrett of Tullig, Millstreet for sharing his magnificent original Painting relating to 1916.   Tony explains:  ” The Painting depicts the surrender of Pádraig Pearse on the event of the Easter 1916 Rising to the British Brigadier General Lowe and his son Captain John Lowe

Elizabeth O’Farrell who was a Nurse attending on the day served as a go between and approached the British barricade waving the white flag of truce.  She seems to have been airbrushed out of the history books so I painted this to as a remembrance to her, to her bravery and to her contribution at this historic moment.”
