Two of Michael's paintings can be seen on display this weekend as part of London Irish Art 2015.

The exhibition will feature two pieces titled ‘Casablanca’ (acrylic on Marley board) and ‘Eye in the Sky’ (acrylic on Marley board). Michael’s work, and those of over forty Irish visual artists, will occupy the impressive 3,000 square feet of Central Hall, Westminster from 14th – 17th January, 2015.


London Irish Art 2015 will proudly present Michael’s paintings alongside works by the celebrated Irish artists Louis Le Brocquy, Robert Ballagh, John Kingerlee, the recent winner of the THA Sean Keating award for Outstanding Painting, Francis O’Toole, as well as Irish painters James Brohan and Liam O’Neill, and renowned Irish sculptors John Behan and Aidan Harte. U.K. based Irish artists will be presented through the contemporary cutting edge work of artists such as David Blackmore, Alison Lowry, Kyle Barnes, Donal Moloney, Aisling Drennan and Patricia Volk.


London Irish Art was officially launched today by Minister for Diaspora, Jimmy Deenihan TD and the Ambassador of Ireland to the UK, Dan Mulhall.


London Irish Art 2015 endeavours to explore the personal understanding and the experience of the Irish diaspora living in the U.K., specifically in relation to culture, identity and creativity. A dynamic programme of art, poetry and music, will inform this exciting investigation. A vast array of media will be explored, ranging from traditional forms of painting, photography and sculpture to more contemporary means of expression such as video work, mixed media, installation and stop-motion animation.

A Castlehyde Christmas


Castlehyde Christmas


~ Michael Flatley opens his home to children in Cork ~


Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley and his wife Niamh opened their beautiful Castlehyde mansion outside Fermoy Co. Cork, to spread Christmas cheer to vulnerable children in the Cork region.


Over 100 children and families supported by Barnardos enjoyed an afternoon of festivities in the 18th century home of the famous Irish dancer, where they met Santa, and left brimming


with gifts and treats. Commenting Michael Flatley said, “Unfortunately, there are so many families in Ireland who cannot afford to give their children the Christmas they deserve. 


We wanted to make a little difference to as many children in Cork as possible - to give them a Christmas to remember, and to ensure they all have a present to unwrap on Christmas morning.”


Fergus Finlay, Chief Executive of Barnardos, said, “We are hugely grateful to Michael and Niamh Flatley for opening their home and their hearts to children we work with in Cork. 


Their support will help ease the burden of many families this Christmas.”
