Cork Film Festival, Dermot Breen, Award

Description

This black and white photo shows the festival director presenting a St Finbarr statuette to an unidentified recipient. 

The St Finbarr statuette was designed by the Cork-born sculptor Seamus Murphy RHA. A small number of festival programmes (eg 1970) have a short history of the legend of St Finbarr. They note that St Finbarr is the patron saint of the Diocese of Cork; born in the sixth century at Raithleann near Bandon, he was the son of Amergin, a metal worker. Finnbarr founded a monastic settlement at Lough Irce, which we know as Gougane Barra – the source of the River Lee in Cork.
