MEET Sarah Eva Manson, the 31-year-old who was born to be an artist, living at Ballyrogan – not so far from Redcross. The daughter of two painters, she was surely fated to follow in their imaginative footsteps in the world of canvas and creativity. It was her parents who established Ballyrogan House as a colony of the arts as well as the family home.

Back in 1981, father Andrew bought the farmhouse which then was little more than a ruin, in the triangle of countryside between Redcross, Arklow and Wicklow. He was joined by mother Attracta, a native of Sligo, who has found the space here to produce her trademark large canvases.
