From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913
Fifth son of Terence Farrell (q.v.), was born in 1834. He studied in the Schools of the Royal Dublin Society, and afterwards worked in his father's studio.
He assisted his brother Thomas in the execution of the Memorial to Archbishop Murray; the figure of "Prudence" at the base is his work. Soon afterwards he contracted fever, of which he died in 1855. He was buried in the cemetery at Golden Bridge.
From a sad, comfortless childhood Giles Truelove developed into a reclusive and uncommunicative man whose sole passion was books. For so long they were the only meaning to his existence. But when fate eventually intervened to have the outside world intrude upon his life, he began to discover emotions that he never knew he had.
A touching story for the genuine booklover, written by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St John Featherstonehaugh.
