HOME OF SAINT PATRICK FESTIVAL EXHIBITION 2019

Fri 8 March – Sat 4 May | Gallery

Louis le Brocquy is considered one of Ireland’s foremost painters. Born in Dublin in 1916 Le Brocquy’s work is exhibited at galleries across the world and represented in numerous public collections, from the Guggenheim, New York to Tate, London.

The Táin tapestries grew out of le Brocquy’s remarkable set of illustrations for the translation of the ‘Táin’ legend by the poet Thomas Kinsella. The heroic story of the war between Ulster and the men of Connaught over the famous brown bull of Cooley.

This wonderful exhibition affords a rare opportunity to experience le Brocquy’s powerful combination of visual and narrative skills through the medium of tapestry together with contextual information about this particular body of work.
