Dr Nicola Gordon-Bowe graced the inauguration of the Cork Decorative & Fine Arts Society at Triskel Christchurch on 17th October 2013 with a brilliantly delivered lecture, “The Arts and Crafts Society of Ireland and the decorative arts during the early 20th century Celtic Revival“.

We were deeply honoured by her presence and contribution, and deeply saddened at her untimely passing.

This Society will always remember her with deep respect, and great affection.

Anthony Wade, Life President
