A George Moore Kaleidoscope

 

A most successful and enjoyable afternoon was had at the Museum of Literature Ireland last Friday the 25th November celebrating the work of Moore.    David Deane, a descendant of George Moore, spoke movingly of his relative.  The Deane family have very generously loaned the bronze death mask of the writer to the museum.  Next time you are in Dublin make sure to visit MoLI to see this wonderful and profound piece of work.

 

Five extremely interesting and diverse papers were delivered, both panels ably chaired by Professor Adrian Frazier.  As ever, questions were raised by the audience further enhancing and expanding knowledge of the writer, the history of his time, his links to Mayo and Dublin, and the abiding influence of music in his work.  To illustrate the latter, a gifted violinist played carefully chosen pieces which enhanced the event.
