The Curious History of Irish Dogs

The Curious History of Irish Dogs - A talk for The Year of the Dog

Wednesday 28 February at 6.30pm

Speaker: David Blake Knox
An event by the Dublin Chinese New Year festival in association with the National Library.
The Year of the Dog offers a great opportunity to reflect on the role of ‘man’s best friend’ in Irish society, and in Chinese society. At this special event, writer of The Curious History of Irish Dogs David Blake Knox will shed light on the nine breeds of dog native to Ireland and the unique roles that each have played in Irish history. Blake Knox will be joined by Dublin based Chinese artist Angela Wang, who will create live illustrations inspired by the talk.
