You are welcome to join us at a wine reception  for the opening of the Inis Airc art exhibition by Pádraic Reaney.

Inis Airc is artist Pádraic Reaney’s response to the changing form of Inishark, an island off the west Galway coast. It uniquely captures a crumbling cultural landscape as the uninhabited island, which once supported a community of over 200 people, returns to nature.

This exhibition is funded by the Discipline of Geography, NUIG, for the 7th EUGEO Congress in conjunction with the 51st Conference of Irish Geographers, which is co-chaired by Dr Frances Fahy and Dr Kathy Reilly and will take place from the 15-18th of May. The exhibition will be open to all 500 conference delegates throughout the duration of the conference and is open to all staff, students and visitors to our University from May 7th until May 28th, 2019. Our thanks to Richard Scriven (Geography), Dan Carey and the Moore Institute for all of their work and support in preparation for this exhibition.
