CCOI Poll on Name Ammendment.


- Message from CCoI for GANS members ( Guilds, Associations, Networks and Societies ) -

"Further to the GANS meeting which took place in Kilkenny on 16th September 2011, an online poll has been created as part of the consultation process around the proposal to amend the name of the Crafts Council of Ireland (CCoI) to include the word 'Design'.

This online poll provides your members with an opportunity to share their thoughts and feedback on this proposal, and this feedback is very important to us.  We would therefore ask you to encourage all of your members to take a few minutes to participate in the online poll.  CCoI will also be inviting our registered clients to participate in the poll.

Please click on this link: POLL FORM which directs to:
• a letter from the Board of Directors of the Crafts Council of Ireland inviting your members to participate in this poll
• an outline regarding the background and rationale for the proposal
• the online poll

As mentioned in the letter, any GANS member who has a query or would like to obtain additional information on the proposed name amendment can email

We would ask all GANS members to complete the poll by Friday 25th November 2011 in order to ensure all feedback can be incorporated as part of our consultation process."

Liam Flynn: Retrospective and New


Liam Flynn: Retrospective and New

To mark the 'Year of Craft' Limerick's Hunt Museum will display the creations of acclaimed Limerick craft artist Liam Flynn. With a growing international reputation Flynn's almost ethereal works of art in wood are now collected by some of the world's leading museums such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Working largely with Irish timbers, Flynn, who turns wood, from raw oak to works of incredible delicacy and finesse, is a master craftsman of international calibre.
This mid-career retrospective brings together a selection of works which emphasise his excellence and the benefit to Limerick of having an artist of such international stature in its midst. With an additional small selection of works for sale viewers and visitors can not only admire Flynn's achievements to date but acquire a work to be treasured for generations to come.

4th November — 31st December
Opening hours Mon—Sat 10am—5pm and Sunday 2—5pm

Admission free.
