About Me

Sean Curran, Artist, fine art reproductions of original water-colour painting.

Probably the most iconic image of Dublin are the two distinctive red and white chimneys of Poolbeg power station, built in 1969 and 1977 and standing at over 207 metres, the power station is still operational but the chimneys were decommissioned in 2010. 

Locally known as the Pigeon House, the title on this print, called after a very popular man, John Pidgeon. Around 1760 he was a caretaker of a storehouse used by the builders of the Great South Wall and then a shop selling refreshments, tea, cakes and lemonade at his storehouse to passengers of the packet ships travelling from England and Europe.
