Paintings by Olive Stack – Text by Nora Relihan and Padraig O Concubhair
Published by Laurel Cottage Ltd 2006

‘…The illustrations here are bolder and stronger, adopting different techniques for different subjects so that some use strong local colours and others go for the subtleties of light and atmosphere. Olive Stack bravely and very successfully also tackles period interiors, the human figure and portraits’. (Books Ireland, November 2006)

The book features 33 paintings including landscapes, seascapes and streetscapes of the North Kerry region

After a brief introduction of the history of the area by Padraig O Concubhair, Olive Stack and author Nora Relihan embark on a leisurely journey around North Kerry. Having written and presented for RTE, Lyric FM and Radio Kerry, Nora’s wealth of local knowledge assures the reader of informative and interesting text. Padraig O Concubhair has published numerous books on Kerry and various aspects of its history

Each book is individually signed by Olive and retails at the reduced price of €10 plus postage
