Art exhibition and sale in aid of Hospice



An Exhibition and Sale of paintings by Lily Walshe, Elphin, will be held in Roscommon School of Art, Antogher Road, Roscommon, on Friday, 16th of November (7-9 pm) in aid of Mayo/Roscommon Hospice and Palliative Care.

  The local Palliative Care team helped Lily and the Walshe family during her husband Marty’s final weeks in 2005.

  Lily took up painting as a hobby in 2009, following her retirement from Primary school teaching. She was introduced to Stephanie Cuddy Cullen in August 2011, and has enjoyed weekly classes at Stephanie’s School of Art in Antogher Road since then.

  Lily has held three exhibitions in the past five years and has given the proceeds to Hospice, in gratitude for the care and kindness shown to her late husband and family. Many families have similar stories to relate. On the 16th of November you have another chance to say thanks – by supporting this event. All are welcome. (For more information, call 087-1256167).
