Thomas Moore Exhibition

Thomas MooreThe Thomas Moore Festival, in association with the Royal Irish Academy, is delighted to announce that due to public demand, the travelling exhibition “My Gentle Harp” continues its nationwide tour, this month stopping off in County Clare. The exhibition can be viewed at the DeValera Library, Harmony Row, Ennis, where it will be on display during library opening hours from 23rd September to 22nd October. The exhibition outlines the story of Thomas Moore's life and literary works, and his world-famous songs - the Irish Melodies. The exhibition opened at the RIA in Dublin, in June 2008, and then travelled to Cork, Wexford, Belfast, Castlebar, Kerry and NUI Galway, receiving a very good response and attendance. The exhibition formed part of the very successful Thomas Moore Festival 2008, which also featured an extensive concert touring programme, a number of conferences and a large recording project.
