Enable Ireland Kerry Looks For Artists To Donate Work For Charity Auction

Posted by


Dingle trawlers by Michael Flaherty is one of the works donated for the auction.

ENABLE Ireland Kerry Services is appealing to artists to donate art pieces inspired by the wild Atlantic coast for their upcoming charity sale.

The national charity is holding an online art sale in November, and is seeking donations from artists based along Ireland’s Atlantic way in the counties of Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal.

Pieces created by artists based outside of this area (that are related to the Atlantic coast) are also welcome.

Enable Ireland provides disability services to over 9,000 children and adults across Ireland. Their fundraising income has been severely impacted due to Covid 19, and the art sale will help to raise urgent funds to support their vital disability services.

Sean Scally, Enable Ireland Community Fundraiser, says: “We hope that the event will promote and celebrate the natural beauty of Ireland’s west coast that has inspired so many artists, whilst also raising vital funds to support our services. We have had a great response from artists throughout the county and delighted that so many have supported us. It’s a difficult for time for all artists in the county but we have been overwhelmed by the response so far.”

The art sale will take place online on Monday, November 16. Full details for the sale will be published on  www.enableireland.ie. A number of artists have already donated pieces inspired by the rugged coastlines of Kerry, Galway and Clare.

If you are an artist, or if you know someone that can donate a piece of art, please contact Sean in Enable Ireland’s Fundraising Team on 087 760 9768, or via email at communications@enableireland.ie.
