Golfing Union of Ireland Portraits
In 2014 Jim was commissioned by the Golfing Union of Ireland (the oldest golfing union in the world!) to provide portrait drawings of all past presidents, beginning in 1891 - 68 pictures in all! It was quite a challenge to create good images from some of the very blurred, ancient photographs, often the only source of information but it worked out extremely well. It was a marvellous task to accomplish and a wonderful commission to have received. The whole set is on exhibition at the new Golfing Museum at the Union's headquarters in Carton House, Co. Kildare.
