Brian Ború Exhibition

Joining in the nationwide commemorations of the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf and the death of Brian Ború, High King of Ireland, the following treasures from the Library's special collections will be on display alongside other titles of interest until Easter:
  • Mac-ghníomhartha Bhriain / Tomás Ó Concheanainn (Conradh na Gaeilge, 1905) 
  • Brian Bóirmhe : a shaoghal agus a bheatha / Seán Ua Ceallaigh (Conradh na Gaeilge, 1906) 
  • Programme for Kincora by Lady Gregory at the Abbey Theatre (Irish National Theatre Society, 1905) 
  • Niamh / Peadar Ua Laoghaire (Muintir na Leabhar Gaedhilge, 1907) 
  • A new song for Peggy & Brendan : to the tune of 'Brian Boru's harp' (St. Sepulchre's Press, 1969) 
For many of the items, it is their first time on display and they both welcome and warrant a visit. Look for the table decked in blue and gold in the Library foyer!
