Christy Browne Remembered

Christy Browne, artist and his mother are remembered at this time. Christy passed away in Sept 1981 after a life spent painting with his left foot.

Christy Browne was the youngest of 13 children born to a Crumlin family. Christy's mother never let his cerebral palsy stop Christy doing anything he wanted. She encouraged his art and his writing. He celebrated her in his autobiography My Left Foot which was later to be made into a film. Brenda Fricker won an Oscar for her portrayal of Christy's mother.

Christy married and lived out his final years in Co. Kerry.
