The title of her lecture is - Art and Patronage in late Medieval Ireland
This illustrated talk will examine the art and architecture of monastic Ireland in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The different types of objects that were produced during the period will be examined, together with the motivation behind their creation and what they tell us about the society that created them. A number of examples of local buildings and artworks will be included in the talk and placed in the broader context of the time.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the Mayo religious house i.e. Straide, Rosserk, Moyne etc.
