Ballyscunnion, The mythical Irish village, was created by William (Bill) St.J Glenn. The images of the daily happenings in
the village were published in the monthly Irish magazine "Dublin Opinion". The drawings started in the late Thirties
and continued until the magazine ceased publication in the Sixties.
The drawings were created using the "scraper board"
technique that gave a crisp dramatic presentation. The monthly sketches combined Humour and current World events as seen in
an Irish village of an earlier time period.
The Artist had wished that the Ballyscunnion
sketches would eventually be available for viewing by the general public. The collection of over one hundred original drawings
have now been transfered to the National Gallery of Ireland for safe keeping and display as part of their future programs.
