As I said before, I was away from the radio most of the morning (so I missed most of the discussion about Dr McDaid).
I was away from the radio as I was visiting local artist of world-renown, Martin Mooney, at his home near Ramelton. Martin is providing two pieces, and his wife Trudy is providing one piece, to be auctioned to benefit the Donegal Hospice during my Mayor’s Ball on May 5th.
Martin was contacted by Sally Blake, who has been a huge help in organising the event. Sally, and her mother Molly, are sponsoring two of the pieces, and Martin is donating the other piece. Molly receives regular respite care in the Hospice, and Sally and Molly wanted to make this contribution in return for all they have received.
Martin is an extremely highly-regard artist. Some of his work is available to view here and here. Louis Walsh considers him “the best investment in art”. These pieces (below) are highly prized, and will not only make a great investment but would fit perfectly in practically any home.
They will be auctioned on the night of the ball (May 5th), but I will also be accepting bids in advance. If you would like to bid, give me a ring on +353 87 997 3668
My huge thanks to Martin, Trudy, Sally and Molly for their generous donations.
