There’s a night for the diary for all budding and seasoned artists and all interested. Come Sunday, the third of September ,there will be a second winner of Lockies Annual Art Competition.

Who will win the event is anyone’s guess. For the rest of the month of August there is time  to get over to Henry Loughrans on Trimgate Street, Navan and actually peruse the art of the 29 gifted painters in the flesh.

Niall Brennan has been dreaming up ideas over the last number of years to bring fun and entertainment to Henry Loughrans.

Managing the well known and traditional  landmark pub on the main street of Navan for many years. Niall has added to the popularity of the venue with additional interests to the patrons.

Some of the art on display;


A walk down the alleyway paints an eclectic flavour of tastes not seen elsewhere in the town. It is different and people are enjoying themselves which is what it is all about.

And  Lockies Art Competition  is one idea that has caught the attention. The works are individual’s various interpretations of life ,of dreams, of thoughts,  some zany ,some funny , some out of this world but in the minds of the painter,

You can also see the collection by logging on to;

Better still get in have a look and enjoy the craic and a few pints or whatever beverage tickles your fancy.
