Community Historian Brendan Matthews considers two works in the Collection, Gabrielle Ricciardelli’s View of Drogheda and Thomas Markey’s Drogheda, 1921 and introduces the practice and influence of Ricciardelli’s painting on Markey, and the contemporary events of the day that brought Markey to paint Drogheda 1921.
Thomas Markey was born in Drogheda in 1885. He resided in Coolagh Street, on the Beamore Road and was employed as a carpenter by the Drogheda Corporation. A self-taught artist, a number of his works form part of the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection.
