Published in 1991 and acquired by University College Cork in 2013, The Great Book of Ireland captures a significant moment of Ireland's cultural production. This exhibition explores the ideas that went into the creation of the manuscript, the ways in which collections offer insight into specific historical moments and the legacy of such anthologies.
Through significant works on loan from the Irish Museum of Modern Art as well as UCC's own art collection, Facing Pages provides an opportunity to encounter the art of many of the visual artists who contributed to The Great Book of Ireland such as Robert Ballagh, Cecily Brennan, Barrie Cooke, Michael Farrell, Eithne Jordan, Louis le Brocquy, Tony O'Malley, and Kathy Prendergast.

This is Jean's first poetry collection and it moves between diverse but not incidental locations: Dublin, Clare, Oslo and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

She studied Irish Folklore and English Literature in UCD, Dublin. She has been shortlisted twice, in 2010 and 2011, for Galway's Over The Edge New Writer of the Year, and in 2012 was shortlisted for the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award.

FRED & ALICE
Love in the time of OCD
Written & directed by John Sheehy
Fred and Alice first met in the home. It wasn't really a home but Fred always called it a home because that was where he lived, and if you are not living at home then where are you? It was love at first sight for Alice. Fred didn't talk to her again for years but then eventually Fred got used to her and it was love at first for him too.
Come see this blistering head wreck played at a hilarious pace! More
