Davy Portrait Awards come to Farmleigh (Wednesday 11 March 2009)

This show has already been seen at the Naughton Gallery in Belfast, but now it has come to Dublin. It brought back memories to some of the Arnott's Portrait Awards, and indeed it appears to be a worthy successor. (More on the Davy Portrait Awards themselves here.)
