A few days ago I was delighted to be a guest on The History Show on Limerick City Community Radio, hosted by John O’Carroll. The two subjects who I talked about were:
- Sir Hugh Lane – art dealer, promoter, gallery director and patron of Irish Art ; and
- Jonathan Swift – scholar, writer, satirist, Dean of St Patrick’s Cathedral and hospital patron.
Both of these men made immense and unique contributions to Ireland that we still enjoy and, no doubt, will the generations to follow.
