O'Farrell was born in Corbally in Limerick, Ireland in 1951 and
has been recording scenes of the city since he was a boy. It has
been said that he captures the very air of Limerick in his work;
perhaps because the city has always played such a significant role
in his life.
And he's not just a city boy! He lives in the country in Clarina, some miles from Limerick city, and he is also a lover of the sea. He has painted the countryside around his home and in West Cork, Clare, and Kerry . . . most notably the Blasket Islands, which have a special place in his heart.
In the past year or so, Jim has had a number of his paintings reproduced as limited edition prints and greeting cards. You can view them here.
now, the works displayed concentrate on Limerick city . . . but
please come back soon to see a wider range of Jim's work.
