The Model

We visited The Model in Sligo, on Tuesday, February 27th to see the exhibition, ' The Sunset Belongs to You' by two of the country's leading artists, Geraldine O' Neill and Mick O'Dea.

In 2022 when Adam was in 5th class here in Rathlee , The Model invited school children in County Sligo to submit a piece of writing about their lives.

Adam wrote about his love of farming and helping out at weekends at his grandad' s beef farm. Adam was chosen to have his portrait painted by artist, Geraldine O' Neill.

Adam also featured on the RTÉ programme 'This Is Art Club! ' Adam interviewed Portrait Painter, Mick O'Dea, who discusses what makes a good portrait and where his inspiration comes from! Below is the link to the programme.

Adam travelled to The Model with us and we got to hear all about his experiences.

We are very proud of him and wish him all the best in Coláiste Iascaigh.
