Our Irish Women Launch in Louisburgh

Fantastic interest in Exhibition

By Mary O'Malley

Sincere thanks to all who came to the Launch of "Our Irish Women" Exhibition in Louisburgh April on 12th 2019. Great positive & inspiring words about the exhibition and wonderful stories retold of Louisburghs' own Sr. Hilary Lyons as she is honoured as a participant in the exhibition. The Exhibition will remain in Louisburgh until April 26th 2019 in five venues, creating an Exhibition Trail. 

None of this could be possible without the co-operation of Louisburgh 74 Cafe, Solas Craft shop, Books@one, GrainneUaile Heritage Centre & Tia Cafe. We are so thankful to the National Museum of Country Life for taking this Exhibition on tour to local communities to celebrate women whose stories are lesser known. It is creating an awareness of the wonderful work undertaken by the iCAN network.
