Exhibition: Dennis Dinneen @ Douglas Hyde Gallery
Today and tomorrow are the last chances to see an extensive selection from the Dennis Dinneen archive in The Douglas Hyde Gallery. Operating out of the room adjacent to this pub in Macroom, County Cork between the ’50s and ’70s, Dinneen captured an Ireland that has faded in recent decades. The imagery created is an important sociological document of an Ireland transitioning from the a newly established country to entering the European fold in the start of the 1970s. The Church stilled loomed large in community affairs and emigration had become an all too frequent bedfellow.
