Hidden Treasures of the Greenway is an idyllic collection of paintings by Dymphna O’Herlihy, currently exhibiting on the Staff Art Wall.

A self-taught artist, Dymphna is a Health Care Assistant at University Hospital Waterford (UHW), working on the Oncology Day Ward and at the Breast Clinic.

Dymphna began painting four years ago.  She finds that painting stimulates her imagination and inspires her to contemplate the world around her.

Hidden Treasures of the Greenway is Dymphna’s second exhibition.  She states, ‘Waterford Greenway poses several spectacular views along its 46km track and is a haven for those looking to unwind. It inspires me endlessly and I feel I still have many treasures yet to discover’.  Hidden Treasures of the Greenway depicts five scenes of the 3km stretch of the Waterford Greenway from Killotteran to Kilmeaden Station.
