We walked in and didn’t know it was a “free “ exhibit of Irish artists, collected by Hugh Lane, who opened his works to all. Besides several impressionsists , the main portion were Irish painters that I never knew about.

The gallery is a small Dublin-Irish story with paintings. It includes periodical exhibitions with a number of pioneers. I beat the visual Doireann O' Malley Melee and Rachel McNeal. There is also the workshop of the FRANCIS BACON . It's FREE.
