I entered two pieces (Large Parika and Wing) for the Eigse Carlow Arts festival, one was selected for the Open Show and one the Local artists section. The festival ran from the 13th to 21st June 2009.

I was also involve with a group of local Carlow artists called “Blueprint” and we exhibited during the Festival as a fringe event. I exhibited my maquette for the Shamrock Plaza art commission and Torso.


Brandon Mclane, Steven Myndhardt, Mary Cullen, Tom Cranny, Darren Caffrey, Julie Ward, Lynda Phelan, Martin Lyttle, Marie Cumisky and Nicola Brown.


Thanks to Mary and Brandon for organising and being the driving force for the show.

Martin Lyttle is a recognised Irish stone sculptor. With a sensitivity to the local lithology of an area, Martin works only with local Irish stone from quarries or found stone. He is interested in organic shapes and forms especially those found in nature. Much of his work is hand-polished so his works are wonderful to touch and hold. His work has been selected for the Royal Hibernian Academy Annual Exhibitions and he has completed large scale public and private commissions. He is a member of FORM designmade in Carlow and the Blackstairs 9 Stones Artists Groups.
