    Visiting the Claddagh: Artists and Others, 1840–1914

    Lecture. Prof. Angela Bourke, University College Dublin. Until 1937, when its rows of small thatched houses were demolished to make way for modern housing, the Claddagh fishing village on the edge of Galway City had a unique tradition and personality. It was also easily accessible to outsiders, who came to alleviate poverty, to sketch, paint, and take photographs, and to collect folktales. Angela Bourke will discuss cultural encounters in the Claddagh in the period between the Great Famine and the Great War, including the making of paintings featured in Rural Ireland: The Inside Story at the McMullen Museum.
