Conor Harrington In Ireland

Conor Harrington has been a busy man in his home country of Ireland. He has taken leave of his usual 'military-themed' pieces and instead has been painting cowboys. The reason according to Conor: "Ireland is balls deep in a recession thanks to the Holy Trinity of Irish corruption – the politicians, bankers and developers. I’ve always thought that we have a certain cowboy mentality in Ireland, maybe because we’re on the wild west of Europe or maybe because of our strong links to America over the centuries and I think its that cavalier bandit attitude that got us in so much trouble."
