About the Author

Seamus Murphy was born in Mallow, County Cork, in 1907. He went to school in Cork where he was a pupil of Daniel Corkery. On leaving school at fourteen he was apprenticed as a stonecarver for seven years. At the same time, encouraged by Corkery, he studied modelling and carving at night in the Crawford School of Art. From there he was awarded the Gibson Bequest Scholarship to study sculpture in Paris for two years. On returning to Cork, he opened his own studio. He exhibited work at the Royal Hibernian Academy every year from 1931 to the year of his death, 1975, and became Professor of the RHA in 1964. His work, which is to be seen all over Ireland, and in England and America, includes allegorical figures and madonnas, headstones, memorials and portrait busts.


William Harrington is a landscape and streetscape painter and illustrator who draws inspiration from his native Cork city.
