A fascinating look at the history of censorship in Ireland. Exhibition boards are illustrated with factual data backed up by illustrations and snippets of letters and newspapers. Some of our greatest writers made the long list such as John McGahern, Patrick Kavanagh, Sean O'Faolain. This exhibition - on loan from Cork City Libraries - is beautifully put together and very informative.
