I was an honour to exhibit my work here at the Northern Ireland Assembly. I was born in Belfast and have many happy childhood memories of growing up in Garvagh and holidays in the Antrim coastal area. I'd like to thank the speaker for his invite and I hope that my paintings help in letting the World know that Northern Ireland is ready to stage' The Open' again. Great golfing champions and beautiful courses confirm that. Good luck to everyone involved in making that dream happen. I want to thank my family and in particular my fantastic sister 'Lynne'. Thank you to you all for coming and I hope you enjoy my work.
