The Irish Arts Council Turns 70

It was a very progressive step – the establishment of the Irish Arts Council in 1951. The first meeting took place in January 1952 so in January of this year the 70th anniversary of that meeting was marked. The current Director of the Arts Council, Maureen Kennelly, spoke to Ger Sweeney recently for his Irish radio programme on Spanish radio station Talk Radio Europe.
