Múrmhaisiú Naomh Ghobnatan

Blianta fada ó shin, thosnaigh an dearc ealaíontóir, Pauline Dodds, ar múrmhaisiú a dhéanamh ar falla taobh istigh den Ionad Cultúrtha. Theastaigh uithi saol Ghobnatan agus scéalta eile ón dúthaigh a leagadh amach mar ‘scéal dearc ealaíne’ ar falla mór an áiléir. Níor éirigh léi é a chríochnú ag an am, de bharr timpiste. Mar sin, bhí an saothar leath déanta le blianta fada agus é go mór in ár intinn é a chríochnú am éigin. Fé mar a thárla sé, bhí an t-adh dearg linn, nuair a tháinig Meirceánach isteach chughainn ar an 11ú Feabhra 2015, ar Lá ‘le Ghobnatan agus ag éirí as seo, thóg sí an cinneadh an tionscnamh a mhaoiniú go h-iomlán. D’oibrigh Pauline ar an obair mhór seo i rith an tSamhraidh 2015 agus tá an múrmhaisiú ‘Naomh Ghobnatan’ críochnaithe anois. Beidh an saothar á sheoladh ag Páidí Ó Lionáird ag taispeántas le Pauline ar Lá ‘le Ghobnatan 2016 agus beidh an Meirceánach linn i gcóir an ócáid speisialta seo.

A good number of years ago, the visual artist, Pauline Dodds, started a mural in the Ionad Cultúrtha, dedicated to local folklore and, in particular, to Saint Gobnait. However, the mural was never completed, due to a back injury that the artist sustained while working on the mural. The completion of the work was therefore put on the back boiler for a number of years. In 2015, on St Gobnait’s Feast Day, 11th February, an American lady visited the Ionad Cultúrtha and was so struck by the in-complete mural and the story behind it, that she made contact with the Ionad Cultúrtha on her return to the States a number of weeks later. She offered to fund the completion of the mural and so during the summer of 2015, Pauline Dodds embellished and finished the work. It is now one of the centre pieces of the exhibition space and it will be ‘launched’ as part of Pauline’s solo exhibition on the 11th February 2016. We expect the Ameircan philathropist to be in attendance at the night of the opening.
