‘The Only One On The Coast’ (1970)

This morning.

He painted matchstalk men and a public convenience.

Will Derham tweetz:

This is very cool – who knew the famous British artist, L.S. Lowry once visited and sketched my home town of Skerries? If anyone has a spare £12k, you can buy it for me here


L S Lowry?


Not a bother on him.

Celebrate his love for the beautiful game.

Just 25 minutes north from Dublin city by train, a town of islands and castles; harbours and windmills; the turf-smoke tang of cobbled backstreets; salt air and seals, trawlers chugging to sea and the steam of your breath in the air under an azure November sky. The music is by Bryan Michael Mills from the movie soundtrack to Slow West (2015) – reminding me that Skerries is the only place on the east coast of Ireland where you can sit in a pub and watch the sun set over the sea. How about a pint?

Better than Bray, some say.
