In 2015, the Artillery Club commissioned a portrait of Lieutenant-General Conor O’Boyle DSM, who was appointed as Chief of Staff on 12 August 2013.    He retired from the Defence Forces on 28 September, 2015.

The Club remains grateful to Commandant Paddy Walsh (Retd) for undertaking the commission pro gratus.  Photographs of the unveiling ceremony which took place on St Barbara’s Day 2015, can be viewed elsewhere in the website.

On 25 February, 2016, the Club President, presented the Portrait to the Artillery School.
