“…Barbara O’ Meara achieves some terrific water effects in her allegorical work…” Aidan Dunne The Irish Times Visual Arts Review 13/01/2007

“Fabulous Art at the Cockleshell Gallery” – ‘By the Simple Action of Water’ Solo Exhibition Duncannon Arts Centre New Ross Standard 24/03/2010

“… Her chief focus has always been on expressing the fragility of life and at the same time developing and capturing the essence of her own personal journey….the themes which drive her practice are still the same, O’Meara likes to experiment with a variety of media, which brings a refreshing element of chance to her work”
