​"At school I could connect with Walter Mitty - he took out the dreamer in me. Without the place and time to dream I would be nothing." visual arts

Tá Cathal McGinley de bhunadh Inis Bó Finne; níor rugadh é ar an oileán ach tógadh é i Machaire Rabhartaigh ag breathnú amach ar áit bhaile a theaghlaigh. Chuaigh sé ar aghaidh chun staidéar a dhéanamh ar an Ealaíon i Sligeach agus ina dhiaidh sin chríochnaigh sé a MA in Ollscoil Uladh.

"Ar scoil d'fhéadfainn ceangal a dhéanamh le Walter Mitty - thóg sé an t-aislingeach ionam. Gan an áit agus an t-am chun brionglóid a dhéanamh ní bheinn mar rud ar bith."
