Daniel O'Neill (1920 - 1974):
Daniel O'Neill was born in Belfast and worked as an electrician. He attended Belfast Technical School for art classes, and held his first exhibition in Mol's Gallery in Belfast in 1940. He undertook night work so that he could use the day for painting. He had a very successful one-man exhibition in Dublin, and Victor Waddington subsidised him so that he could become a full-time artist. After a period abroad he returned to Kerry in the 1960s. He had occasional exhibitions at the Royal Hibernian Academy and in London and Boston.
