Kevin Rafter from Ireland’s Newstalk radio just sent a message telling me that his documentary about Phil Kelly will be rebroadcast this Sunday.

Entitled Painter Man, the program looks at Kelly’s life and work, and will be aired again as a tribute to the great man who passed away last month. (See my own tribute here.)

The documentary was recorded in 2007 in Mexico City and has Phil taking about his childhood in Bray, his school days in Britain, his discovery of painting and the love he found in Mexico, Rafter said.

It will air on Newstalk at 6pm on Sunday 5 September 2010.

The documentary will also be available as part of the listen-back facility on
