FIGHTING IRISH PRINTS

To me, "Fighting Irish" is an ethic more than an ethnicity. Survivors of the Potato Famine, The Fighting Irish Brigade of the American Civil War, immigrant railroad crews, priests and soldiers, farmers and builders, this print tells the story of millions of people who embody the name Fighting Irish. I wanted to make a print that honored the hardworking generations of men and women that fought for the privileges I have today. I come from a line of Ohio farmers and Indiana factory workers. Their willingness to grind towards the American dream has flooded my life with opportunities. One of those was to be a student-athlete at the University of Notre Dame as a midfielder on the Fighting Irish lacrosse team.  As a team, we practiced in the rain, sleet, and snow. We worked at 6 a.m. and we worked at 11p.m. We wore our colors with great pride, and, win or lose, we fought. My experience as an athlete at Notre Dame helped me understand the value of gut wrenching hard work, the true essence of team, and the tremendous power of tradition. It made me think of the generations of people who built those values and chose courage over comfort, and valor over convenience. This print is a tribute to the generations of Americans of all ethnicities who gave spirit to the name "Fighting Irish." It is my hope that these prints will hang in the homes and workplaces of people who share these values and create a painted horizon of FIGHTING IRISH across the country.   These prints are very high quality and I priced them as affordably as possible with proceeds from sales enabling me to work on my next project.  Feel free to email rl@reverelanoue.com or call (919) 695-9080 Thank you!
