Although saving the turf involved long summer days spent in the bog, filled with chasing frogs, hot tea from a flask, ham sandwiches, taytos and every now and then actually helping to foot the sods of turf,  the true reward came many weeks later, in getting the turf home, having it all stacked neatly at the side of the house and covered from the elements (and knowing that the job was over for another year!)

This original oil painting by Sallyann Beirne is the perfect piece of contemporary art for someone with modern tastes but traditional roots. The striking pink foreground, the gorgeous darker tones that merge and meld so fantastically into one another and the traditional turf pile, covered in wooden pallets and old tyres, playing centre stage. Large at nearly 29″ square, this piece would look incredible in either a contemporary or a traditional home – with its nod to both so evident!

This is a highly collectable and very striking original artwork by an internationally selling artist.

 Your Shipping Choices Explained

NOTE: Due to Covid 19 areas are experiencing delays and some restrictions on deliveries – please enquire directly with us if you are concerned. 

We generally use the postal service here in Ireland, called An Post. It is very reliable and we take the utmost care in packing all our pieces professionally to ensure that have the very best chance of arriving safely in their destination.  This option would be at your own risk.

We can also offer you our own cargo insurance at a reasonable price – weight and piece dependent. Please enquire with us for this option. (This will also be packed by us and carried by An Post as above)

Taking into account the delicate nature and cost of your purchase, if you would prefer it travel in a specialized and insured Art Box with an outside Art Handler, then this can be arranged.  For paintings up to and including the size 120cm x 100 cm – prices with an insured professional courier, range from €75 – all the way up to €475 (size and location dependent) NOTE: This option will take considerably longer as we will have to outsource it and get quotes for you before we proceed.

For paintings or items falling outside of those largest dimensions then a further discussion is required – as it may need to have a bespoke crate to be built for it and a further cost will apply.
