Northern Ireland: The Troubles

These paintings begin by depicting events at the start of ‘The Troubles’ in Northern Ireland on 30 January 1972, ‘Bloody Sunday’ portraying British troops on William Street and Fr. Daly as he attempted to escort the mortally wounded Jackie Duddy to safety. The next two paintings show alternate views of Market Street in Omagh, either side of the car bombing of 15 August 1998, only thirteen weeks after the ‘Good Friday Agreement’.

The ‘Omagh’ paintings are held in the collection of Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
