Brian O’Doherty (Patrick Ireland 1972-2008) is Irish America’s most famous artist and an internationally renowned figure in the world of art and culture has created a major new piece of public art, Teanga, which welcomes visitors to the Gaeltacht Quarter of Belfast and celebrates the Irish language. This cross-community project has also received the support of the Ullans Academy and includes important contributions by Ireland’s best-loved artist Robert Ballagh and architect Ciarán Mackel who has designed a pocket park on the Falls in which this magnificent artwork sits.
An Nasc Ltd, which commissioned this work, would be delighted if you could join us for the unveiling on 4 June at noon followed by a reception in An Chultúrlann.
The event was also attended by the Lord Mayor of Belfast, Niall Ó Donnghaile , the Minister of Culture, Arts and Leisure, Carál Ní Chuilín and Roisin Mc Donagh, Chief Executive of the Arts Council. I said a few words in English, Ulster Gaelic (Ulidian) and Ulster-Scots(Ullans), having been born in Bangor, the cradle of Irish literature, both sacred and secular, mentioning also, of course, my great-great grannie Lambie from Islay, who spoke only the Ulster Gaelic, and my grannie Kerr,who spoke the Ulster-Scots.
