“I painted this painting of Jim Kemmy to honour my own personal memory of a person who had a huge influence on my own personal journey, while at the same time to honour a man who was clearly hugely respected both within his community, his county and his country. When i was starting out on my career as a young artist at the age of sixteen, Jim showed up to a Limerick Art Society exhibition and  bought one of my first exhibited drawings and hung it in the mayoral office. I honestly thought, in that moment, that i was made up for life. 
He was always a huge supported of the arts amongst other things, and to me a giant amongst men. 
Clare Hartigan works from her studio based in her home village of Castleconnell , co. Limerick and is represented by Duke Street Gallery in Dublin.
