Gerry McDonnell - the creator of Celtic Hearths fire surrounds - was raised and educated in County Westmeath Ireland.

He emigrated over twenty years ago to the New York area where he has since worked as a carpenter in the construction industry.

Gerrys skills as a carpenter and his love of Celtic artwork have inspired him to create one of the finest detailed collections of Celtic fireplace surrounds ever produced.

His awe inspiring creations have been tremendously well received by all who encounter his artistic craftsmanship.
