'launch ships and burn towers': Beatrice Glenavy and Patrick Pearse

Patrick Pearse and Beatrice, Lady Glenavy (née Elvery) were both shaped by the heady years of the Gaelic Revival at the turn of the 20th century. They first met in their 20s when Beatrice Elvery illustrated Pearse's book of short stories, Íosagán agus Scealta Éile. In the years which followed two of her paintings came to play a central role in the visual identity of Pearse's experimental school, Scoil Éanna. In this lecture, Brian Crowley, Curator of the Pearse Museum will explore the forces which initially brought these two figures together and the very divergent paths which they would later take.
