Fierce Pride: A Response to Michael Hartnett’s
Death of an Irishwoman
An exhibition of paintings by Judy Carroll Deeley
In 2018 Judy Carroll Deeley was invited by the Excel to create a body of work for exhibition in response to Michael Hartnett’s much loved poem, Death of an Irishwoman. The Excel is delighted to present Deeley’s evocative, gentle and sensitive response through the language of painting to Hartnett’s moving tribute to his Grandmother Bridget Halpin.
