Folks who were children in the late 60's /early 70;s will surely remember with fondness Bláithín the first TV artist . Cute,bilingual an everyone's big sister type of gal. I used to love her show......and practiced her art as best I could-she certainly caused some pre pubescent stirrings chez O'Pericles.

RTE have resurrected one of her shows:

I remember her well, used to love the programme; that and 15 mins. of Looney Tunes on Friday evenings.

She became quite a successful still-life artist too....

I have a vague recollection, as I would have been about six or seven. What I DO remember is my sister starting to paint after watching her shows.

I started painting in my early teens, but by then I was into Sorollo, Orpen and Lavery.

For me, sixties TV was Leave It To Beaver and Lincoln Vale of the Everglades.

I loved painting and every painting I have in the house, I painted myself.

Not a great artist, but a beautiful memory.

Ye should watch the show on the RTE player I thought it was great-in a wallowing in nostalgia sort of way.
