Eamon Burke

Eamon Burke’s background is in education, teaching at various times History, Politics, Outdoor Education, Canoeing and Special Education. He has many passions, local history, painting, canoeing, gardening and writing. In 1986 he and his wife Ann undertook the restoration of the seventeenth century Simmonstown House and Gardens, which became a life long project and has opened up avenues of experiences that could never be imagined.

He was introduced to painting by local artist Martin Campion and the Abbey Art Group thirty odd years ago. In later years he studied watercolour at National College of Art under Susanne Mahon.

The Abbey Art Group honoured him in 2000 with Life Long Membership of the Group. He believes that one of the duties of a writer and painter is to record in word and paint the soul of the place.
