A Mixed Media Picture depicting Shane Lowry's Hole in 1 at Sawgrass. By Conor McNally with original signature by Shane.
Shane Lowry does it again. It put a smile back on our faces after his successful
win at Wentworth. It was great to see him back on form and claim a well-
deserved win.
That winning smile has been captured by talented Offaly artist, Conor Mc
Nally. Conor was asked to do a painting of Lowry hitting his “Hole in One” in
Sawgrass, as a fund raiser for a local support group in Geashill. They expected
him to do a quick caricature. Instead, he produced this one off digital painting
capturing Shane Lowry’s winning smile and simultaneously achieving his hole
in one. It is an unusual painting as it has so much information from the
achievement of the day, and still you come back to that familiar Shane smile.
Shane signed the painting, and it is now for auction. The painting is available to
see in the Bridge Centre, Tullamore until Sunday 30 th October. The auction is
on-line. Interested parties can submit their bid and can follow the progress of
the auction on www.seaneacrettauctions.ie or easyliveauction.com
Conor is a young animator, who has worked on various projects in Birr and
Belfast and has had a short film shown in Italy this summer. While animation is
his field, this was the first time he attempted a painting of this style, and the
first time he has recorded a famous person. He didn’t disappoint and can now
add this to his range of work. Hopefully we will be hearing more about him in
the future.
He is giving the proceeds from the auction to The Geashill Ukrainian Support
group, who together with Geashill village and wider area have provided three
families with a home and independence. The families can get some normality
back into their lives. It is very difficult for the families who thought they would
be returning to the Ukraine after six months and they are very grateful for the
homes. The committee recognises that this war could last two to three years
and is very grateful to Conor and Shane for contributing this signed picture to
auction. This allows the committee to sustain the families over their stay.
They started the project in March and managed to fundraise a considerable
sum of money to fund three mobile homes, situated on land donated by local
woman, Bernie O Sullivan.
