Sweet Laoisamhanaig Where Only Our Rivers Run Free is a vibrant print reflecting the mountains and sky in the river I crossed over every day of my childhood in the village of Forkhill, South Armagh. In the background you can see the Longfield side of Slieve Gullion. The river was known as a ‘Laoisamhanaigh’ which is derived from ‘fort of the monk’ and it is believed that there was a monastic settlement nearby.
