Maser’s Portrait of Anne Devlin

Flooding a previously grey wall with colour and resonance in the acknowledgment of a heroic Liberties woman, Maser‘s portrait of Anne Devlin has people talking!

Completed yesterday on the corner of Meath Street and Carman’s Hall, this Liberties Festival 2012 commission has received an unanimously positive and joyful response from the local community and all passers-by.

  1. This is an incredible (and long overdue) tribute to a wonderful woman. Well done Maser and Liberties Festival. I love it.

  2. By the way, from here you can see where Anne’s daughter got married (St. Nicholas of Myra), where Anne got married (St. Catherine’s) and where she died (Little Elbow Lane, now replaced by Reginald Street). Terriffic location.

  3. You might be interested to know that, due to the fire damage to St. Catherine’s Church, Meath St., the annual Commemoration for Anne Devlin, Robert Emmet’s assistant and national hero, will this year be held in the Church of St. Nicholas of Myra, Francis Street, on Sunday 23 September, at 11.30am.
    After the Mass, a wreath will be laid on the grave of this patriot in Glasnevin Cemetery, Glasnevin.
    All are welcome to attend.
