Nenagh photographer's picture, Sad Boy, bares a window to the soul

Padraig O Flannabhra's picture which is on show in the Hunt Museum, Limerick

A selective hand-tinted monochrome image of a young boy at his grandfather's funeral is currently the curator's choice in an exhibition in the Hunt Museum,Limerick.

The award winning picture, The Sad Boy, by Pádraig Ó Flannabhra, evokes a keen sense of sadness and regret; a poignant reminder of the passage of time, even when conveyed through the sad countenance of a youth carrying a funeral wreath.
