Last chance to see

Our look at works from a selection of the collectors of Irish music ends on March 31st, so this is your last chance to see An cruitire by Owen Lloyd (Eoghan Laoide). Born in Kilkee, Co. Clare, Owen Lloyd (c1854-1929) began his study of the Irish harp at an early age. He went on to influence not only Irish harp design but also the teaching, transmission, performance and publication of Irish harp music. In tandem with this grew a passion for the Irish language, with Laoide becoming an habitual performer at Oireachtas events.


 If you would like to view the spotlight exhibition, or to consult material in this vein, please contact the staff of the Special Collections Reading Room in the Hardiman Research Building at specialcollections@nuigalway.ie.
