Youghal at Aherne's =Coastal Living Series 19

A Mother's love, by Helen Tilston
One of my favourite restaurants in Ireland is Aherne's, located in the Historic Walled port of Youghal (Old Town Walls, built in 12th century are still intact) is one of Ireland's Heritage Towns and is seeped in history.  Sir Walter Raleigh was Mayor of this town.  Myrtle Grove his home is worth visiting.

When Katie Fitzgibbon, owner of Aherne's asked if we would exhibit our paintings in their dining room we were thrilled to be associated with this fine establishment.

Coastal Living Series 19 is now at Aherne's.

Should your travels take you to Ireland, Aherne's is a must.

      Lovely to see you here. Thank you for your kind words on my painting. The inspiration was my own mother who loved the ocean and being playful.
