Published by Brandon 2010

One of the most remarkable books to be published in Ireland for many years.

A work of art, a celebration, a unique phenomenon In 2008/2009 a research project supported financially by Ealaín na Gaeltachta succeeded in locating, photographing and cataloguing the works of Liam O’Neill, which had of course been scattered to many purchasers both nationally and internationally. The ambitious project also involved research by Brenda Ní Shúilleabháin in cooperation with the artist into the literary heritage of Corca Dhuibhne – the subject region of O’Neil’s paintings. Following the completion of this project, Brandon embarked on the publication of this book, aiming to provide a unique representation of the art of Liam O’Neill literally side by side with examples from the literary heritage of Corca Dhuibhne. Published as a limited edition in hardback and slipcased, great care has been taken to achieve the finest possible reproduction of the paintings. Each copy of the book is individually numbered and the artist and the editor will be available to sign copies on the night.

Liam O'Neill was born in Corca Dhuibhne, West Kerry, Ireland, 1954 and is among Ireland`s most talented contemporary artists. He is a self taught painter who, over the last twenty years, has shown work at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Oireachtas, National Portrait Exhibition and Claremorris Open. His paintings are collected internationally. Brenda Ní Shúilleabháin is the author of Bibeanna, has directed such documentaries as Do Mhargadh Déanta and Tréigint; she was script editor for Dúil, which was nominated for a Short Film Oscar in 2004.
