Cathal Póirtéir interviews a member of the arts community every week on this programme, and this morning he talks to artist Caoimhghín Ó Croidheáin.

Caoimhghín is an Irish artist from Dublin who has exhibited widely around Ireland. His work consists of drawings and paintings and features cityscapes of Dublin, images based on Irish history, and other work with social/political themes. As well as his art work, he also currently works as a part-time lecturer on aesthetics and the history of Irish art for Boston University in Dublin. He speaks to Cathal Póirtéir today about his life and work.

Bíonn agallamh ag Cathal Póirtéir gach seachtain ar an gclár seo le duine de phobal na n-ealaíon sa tír seo, agus inniu cloisfimid é i mbun comhrá leis an ealaíontóir Caoimhghín Ó Croidheáin.

As Baile Átha Cliath do Chaoimhghín, agus bíonn a chuid saothar ar taispeáint i ndánlanna ar fud na tíre. Ar an obair ealaíne a dhéanann sé tá cathairdhreacha de Bhaile Átha Cliath, íomhánna bunaithe ar an stair, agus saothair a bhfuil téamaí sóisialta/polaitiúil leo. Tá Caoimhghín ag obair mar léachtóir ar stair ealaín na hÉireann in Ollscoil Bhoston i mBÁC faoi láthair. Labhrann sé le Cathal Póirtéir inniu faoina shaol agus a shaothar.
