In this vibrant exhibition, Irish artist Dara Vallely injects the
time-honoured tale of Cú Chulainn with contemporary passion. Dating back
to 7th Century A.D., the Irish hero tale has been handed down from
generation to generation for centuries and still dominates the
mythological landscape of Ireland. In Táin Bó Cúailnge (The Cattle Raid
of Cooley) magic, romance, betrayal and violence mark every twist and
turn in the epic story, as Cú Chulainn defends Ulster against Queen
Méabh of Connaught’s invading army. The exhibition is based on the book
Laoch Na Laochra (Hero of Heroes), a collaboration between Dara Vallely
and Réamonn Ó Ciaráin, published by Gael Linn in 2015 with support from
Ultach Trust.
