More about the Piece:
Apart from rolling green fields and the stone wall, the panel also features the colourful, little thin houses so often found in Connemara’s seaside villages, as well as a Galway Hooker sailing boat. The Hooker, characterised by its single mast and three deep red sails, was the traditional working boat of Galway and Connemara. It transported people, livestock, turf and supplies to, from and between the islands. Of late, the Hooker is experiencing a revival, and superbly renovated examples are frequently seen taking part in regattas here.
