Power and Privilege opens with a Cork flavour

The exhibition Power & Privilege: Photographs of the Big House in Ireland, 1858-1922, which proved an enormous success in Dublin, is to open today in Cork with a local twist.

The outstanding prints from the National Library of Ireland will be joined by photos and memorabilia from the collections of Cork Archives, where the exhibition will be hosted.

If you're interested in going along to the launch, which will be performed today by Lord Mayor Catherine Clancy at 2:30pm, you'd be welcome. If you can't make it this afternoon, the exhibition will be open Monday to Friday (9:30-1pm; 2:15-5:30pm, with last entry at 5pm) until the end of October at the Cork Archives, Seamus Murphy Building, Great William O'Brien Street, Blackpool, Cork.
