Several venues, including Ireland, Scotland, the European mainland and the USA have already agreed to host the exhibition. The reach and influence of St Columba is immense, not just in an Irish and UK context, but also in a European context; and some scholars would argue in a worldwide context due to the great monastic centres of learning he pioneered by his self-imposed exile from Derry.
It is in the context of St Columba's influence that the Derry Playhouse in conjunction with Derry born author/humanitarian, and NOKIA Ambassador, Don Mullan, wish to create a photographic exhibition that links Derry with the monasteries and places across Ireland associated with the saint, as well as the reach of his influence throughout Scotland, England, Europe and America.
Exhibition will be launched in The Playhouse Plaza on Monday 16th September at 7.30pm. All are welcome.« back to What's On
