A member of Aosdana, he started exhibiting regularly in the 1960s in the Irish Exhibition of Living Art and the Oireachtas. He has also showed work with the Taylor Galleries in Dublin, the Dawson Gallery in Dublin and a retrospective was held in his honour by the Galway Arts Festival.
McSweeny was the recipient of several prestigious awards including the Oireachtas Award (1968), the George Campbell Travelling Award (1980), the Carroll Award and a Medal for the Claremorris Open Exhibition (1987-8).
