I was honoured to be have been a part of the O’Sé brothers tribute night. It was wonderful to have two of each  special edition Artist Proofs  of Birthright and First Blood presented to the lads with a few personalised words from the ever eloquent Dara O’ Cinneide “as gaeilge”.

” Our club had a tribute night for the four O’Sé brothers in December 2017 and when it came to choosing the appropriate GAA themed presentations, ‘Birthright’ and ‘First Blood’ spoke to the heart and to the soul of  when acknowledging one familys’ contribution to Kerry football. Go raibh math agat Maureen for so eloquently conveying some of the essence of Kerry football.”

Maureens art and one of her most alluring for me was “Birthright”. This work of art symbolises Kerry patriotism and the passion that is the foundation of Kerry Football and Kerry People.  This has pride of place in my home and I look forward to building on the collection.

Ordered a portrait of my son for my Mothers 60th birthday. Dealt with Maureen who was more than obliging and worked to my budget. Her detail and work was top class. Was a pleasure to deal with her. Highly recommend her.

Having two sons who played for their county, one here and one in Australia, I thought Birthright was an appropriate image for them. Both of them have them hanging in their living rooms taking pride of place.

Maureen has painted my three children over the past few years. In each painting she has captured a unique moment of the child engrossed in play and has created a warm, enduring memory of that childhood in a style that is natural and authentic.

Thanks Maureen for the painting of my two scamps, the kids are still talking about it. A positive experience

I found Birthright on the Kerry GAA website and thought it would be a great Christmas gift for my father. He was born in Kerry and left there in the 1940’s but still is on top of all the Kerry football doings. He passed that passion on to me also thus the need for two prints!

Hi Maureen, just dropping a note to say thanks very much for your beautiful print Birthright – we were in Killarney for the day and spotted it in a shop, and passing it three times, it just had to come home with us. It’s getting a very special place on the wall!

– Bernie and Ger “Birthright”


Beautiful Maureen, your paintings of our two still fill me with delight. Certain things, a photograph just does not capture.

– Jill Barrett Lynch


Maureen did a painting of my three girls. So beautiful. Would recommend her to paint a memory for everyone’s family.

– Sarah Weir   ‘‘ Camogie Girls’


Absolutely gorgeous. First class job. I recommend her to everyone who wants to capture the memory of their child.
