The Pier near Faithlegg House, County Waterford, watercolour by Maud Power c. 1920s.

Maud Anne Power (1860-1938) was the daughter of Patrick and Olivia (nee Nugent, daughter of Earl of Westmeath) Power of Faithlegg House. Maud travelled extensively with her parents. Her parents leased Temple Hill House in 1875 where she was living in 1911. She was an amateur artist who wrote and illustrated a book titled 'Wayside India' published in 1907.  The Spectator reviewed it as follows: 'Miss Power relates her Indian experiences in a lively fashion, not without a certain tone of satire when she comes to describe the manners and customs of the British.  On the whole, the pen and ink pictures are effective...the sketches which are by the same hand, show an elegance'.

She died on 10 October 1938 aged 77 at 19 Alma Road, Monkstown, and is buried at Deansgrange cemetery along with her sisters Ellen and Mary.
