Teach Pobail Mhuire na nGrás 1965-2015

I was very proud to be involved in contributing illustrations for the book
Teach Pobail Mhuire na nGrás 1965-2015
which celebrates the half century of the church

My late father, Gerry Gallagher drew up the plans for the church 50 years ago as a favour to the parish he was from.

I’ve not seen a copy of the book yet but look forward to it.

This weekend the Bishop of Raphoe, Most Rev. Dr. Philip Boyce, O.C.D., will launch the book on Inis Bó Finne on Saturday, 20th June 2015 at 12.30 pm.

Thanks to Fr Seán Ó Gallchóir and  Fr Brian Ó Fearraigh for all the work putting this together.

Thoor Ballylee

Some prints of my scraperboard “The Stares Nest By My Window – WB Yeats” are to be auctioned to raise funds to restore Thoor Ballylee.
This Sunday 31st of May from 17.00 in Thoor Ballylee, Gort, Co. Galway

Press release…..
This weekend we organise an auction to generate much needed funds to restore Thoor Ballylee. The Auction will take place this Sunday 31st of May from 17.00 in Thoor Ballylee, Gort, Co. Galway (2 hours from Dublin).
There is a diverse range of items going on sale reflecting the generosity and breath of support for this vital cultural project, from a local sheep to rare literary works.
Uniquely, the auction will take place from the rooftop of the tower by local Auctioneer, Colm Farrell MIPAV, acting as William Butler Yeats.
Funds raised will be used to re-open the Tower to the public.
To learn more about our exciting project, retrieve a list of auction items and view a fun publicity video please check: http://yeatsthoorballylee.org

With funds raised, the Society will deliver a world class Cultural Centre in the tower which would provide a huge attraction for the area and boost tourism revenues for the region. The tower will accommodate a new Yeats exhibition, a cafe, bookshop, and space for exhibitions, lectures and classes.
