A display of landscape paintings from local artist Conor Ó Daighre, depicting Slieve Gullion from the surrounding townlands of South Armagh and beyond. Slieve Gullion, Ireland’s mystery mountain, is the highest in County Armagh. The eroded remains of a Paleocene volcano rising above the ancient rolling hills and forming a special geological formation, it is steeped in ancient mythology including the sagas of Fionn Mac Cumhaill and Cú Chulainn. Depending on the weather, time of day and place you’re standing, the mountain changes appearance dramatically, making a fascinating subject for landscape oil painting.
