Vicky Phelan Triptych Portrait

UCC is proud to host the Vicky Phelan Triptych Portrait from January 26th for three weeks.  Painted by Irish artist Vincent Devine, the vision for the portrait is to continue Vicky’s legacy, educate people about cervical cancer and raise funds for charity.

The portrait will be in the Boole library until 12:00 on Friday 17th February.  At this time, before it is removed, the owner, David Brennan, will be on hand to give a talk explaining the symbolism in the portrait.
