EILEEN GRAY at ENNISCORTHY'S STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL

This weekend the town of Enniscorthy is holding its Strawberry Festival. When I arrived yesterday, the townsfolk were out in strength, enjoying the sunshine, music and general air of carnival.

The newly and gorgeously refurbished library was site for my talk titled: The Life & Times of Eileen Gray (1878-1976). Irish designer Eileen Gray was born at Brownswood house on the banks of the Slaney, although her creative life was spent in Paris, and her family are remembered fondly in the town. We had a good turn out, an enthusiastic audience with plenty of questions afterwards.
