Come and meet EDDIE CAHILL the artist reformed from criminal status through art and see how he wants to draw attention to Ireland’s domestic conditions which have been faced every Winter by Dublin’s homeless.


Read what they’re saying about him:

Before spending time in Cill Rialaig, Eddie Cahill did time in Portlaoise prison for a laundry list of crimes; before that, as children, he and his late brother Martin ‘The General’ Cahill served another kind of sentence, at St. Joseph’s Industrial School in Letterfrack. It was through the Art in Prison programme, under the guidance of artist Brian Maguire, that Eddie Cahill became deeply engaged with painting.

When you encounter any of his dark, elemental canvases in Heads VIII, does it help to know Eddie’s background, the harrowing details of his life behind and beyond bars?
