Unveiling 1916 Commemorative Plaque Again!

Image
In 1949 my Grandfather Séamus Ó Murchadha unveiled a plaque to commemorate those that served under and with him in the 1916 Rising against the British Empire.
He was Captain of the 4th Battalion stationed at Marrowbone Lane Distillery and served under Éamon Ceannt.

This plaque went missing and turned up two years ago in the City West Hotel. It is now residing in Galway City Museum.

Séamus Ó Murchadha's daughter Gráinne Uí Néill (now 96) unveiled the found plaque at Galway Museum on September 27- 2018

Silver Star and Planet Pendant

We've created a new Silver Star and Planet Pendant and it's available now at www.ruairioneill.com

The design was inspired by watching the Stars and Planets one summer evening in Connemara at the Studio.

These videos explain some of the Design Process.

The music in the background is from the Pixies CD Surfer Rosa.

Working on another King Ring at the Studio. This one was ordered by a descendant of Kings of Ireland, a member of the O'Neill clan!😁

You don't have to be a member of the O'Neill clan to order yours!
