Barry Britton

The Wild Atlantic Craft Beer Festival Poster was hand drawn by Barry Britton who is an local accomplished pen and ink artist, sandetcher of glass, architect and interior designer. And that’s just with his artist’s hat on! He’s probably best known for his work with the Irish Intercounty Surf Contest and the Ballyshannon Folk Festival but he’s done a whole lot more over the last 40 years.

The illustration on the poster is of a local area not far from the brewery on the coast called Kilbarron Castle you can see the ruins of the Castle at the top of the cliff! If you want to see the full range of his artwork, then a visit to the Local Hands Craft shop on Main Street, Ballyshannon or head on down The Atlantic Coast to Britton and Daughters Gallery, Rossnowlagh.

You might want to ring in advance before heading out though. Barry is as passionate about surfing and traditional music as he is about art, so he could be out on the waves or away at a festival when you call by!
