Martin Chute; Master Signwriter

Martin stopped for a chat as he was putting the finishing touches to Tadhg Horan’s sign in The Square.

The sign is top class as always. I’ll be back to photograph the finished sign soon. Martin was adding a border.

Dave O’Sullivan found us this story from July 1972

Tony O’Callaghan was commissioned by the owners of The Great Southern Corrib hotel to make 15 copper relief pictures in honour of the 15 tribes. The finished works hung in the hotels de Burgh Room.

The hotel was demolished in 2021. I wonder where the artworks are now.
