I read with interest the pamphlets on your art exhibit (in the U.S. Capitol Building) and you may be sure that I am looking forward to seeing it. I hope your exhibit will be most successful.
~ Edmund S. Muskie, U.S. Senator, Washington, D.C., 1974

I have hung "Morning Mist, Maine" in the residence of the Embassy and I am very glad to have such a beautiful painting to grace the walls of the house.
~ John G. Molloy, Ambassador of Ireland, Embassy of Ireland, Washington, D.C., 1974

Mr. McGann is also an Irish tradition of which we are very proud, through John B. Yeats and Jack Yeats, to McGann, himself.
~ Gearoid O'Clerigh, Former Irish Consul General to New York

By combining the reflective eye of an artist with the competitive daring of an athlete, McGann touches his paintings with a gull's eye view of the waves.
~ Joan Ryan, Washington Star News, Washington, D.C.
