Patrick Maguire: Coming out of the darkness

One of the Maguire Seven, Patrick Maguire was only 13 when he was wrongly arrested along with his family for being behind the IRA Guildford and Woolwich pub bombings in 1974. Over the past 14 years, he has established himself as an acclaimed artist and tells Joanne Sweeney that he's finally ready to embrace colour in his work.

LIFE for Patrick Maguire was in black and white for a very long time but now at the age of 55, the artist says he's ready for a life in colour at last.

Maguire one of the Maguire Seven, a victim of one of the biggest miscarriages of justice in British legal history.

He was wrongfully imprisoned for five years from the age of 13, having been convicted, along with his parents Annie and Patrick snr, his 17-year-old brother Vincent, his uncles Giuseppe Conlon and Sean Smyth and family friend Patrick O'Neill, of operating a bomb-making factory from their north London home, which was said to be the source of the explosives for the IRA Guildford pub bombings in 1974.

Maguire's first exhibition of work in years, Out from the Darkness, was open for viewing in London recently.
