Glebe House From The Back by 


This beautiful Regency house near Letterkenny in Donegal was the home of the English portrait and landscape painter Derek Hill. It was originally a Church Of Ireland Rectory and it was and is still known locally as St Columb’s House.
While the front of the house is elegant and understated this back entrance is particularly lovely with this red and white iron trellis work.
Located outside Letterkenny, St. Columba House and Glebe Gallery, a former Church of Ireland rectory, exhibits an impressive collection of Victorian, modern and contemporary art. The house was home to the late artist Derek Hill who lived there in the 1950s and donated the house and his collection to the Irish state in 1980. St. Columba House is furnished with period furniture with wallpaper designed by William Morris. The Derek Hill collection includes paintings by 20th century artists and ceramics by Pablo Picasso. Irish artwork is represented by paintings by Louis Le Brocquy and a series of paintings of Tory Island.

    Fantastic capture! I love the shadows; and these sort of things tend to work best in black and white, though in this case so much would be lost without the colors – the best of both worlds. It is also kind of neat how the drain gutter and flower pot divides the picture.

  • Thank you very much Mui………………..you have a great eye for detail………………….glad you like the image……………..it is a very beautiful house of modest proportions…………………………Joyce
