The Irish Women Lawyers Association in partnership with legal publishers Hanna Fine Art is delighted to announce the forthcoming release of a fine art print of Irish artist Stephen McClean’s original oil on canvas – “Entering the Four Courts”- as part of our “Celebrating a Century” commemorations.

This magnificent painting is being published in a limited edition of only 250 prints to mark the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 – which enabled women to become barristers, solicitors, jurors and magistrates – and to honour and celebrate the role and contribution of women to the legal profession in Ireland over the last 100 years.

Every print in the edition will be individually hand-signed by Mary Robinson , the first woman President of Ireland, and Susan Denham, the first woman Chief Justice of Ireland, to create an important and historic Irish legal collectable, which is already being referred to as the most significant and valuable print in the history of the Irish legal profession.

This special print will raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Ireland and a cheque will be formally handed over to the charity by the IWLA from the edition proceeds.

The print will be formally released later in the year at an invitation-only reception, when guests will be addressed by Mary Robinson and Susan Denham, however it is now available to pre-order directly from the publishers, Hanna Fine Art.

The cost of the double-mounted and framed print, bearing the original signatures of Mary Robinson and Susan Denham, is £395.00 stg, including courier delivery to your home or office address. We would urge members to support this unique IWLA initiative by purchasing one of these historic prints.

If you would like to reserve a print, and be among the first to receive “Entering the Four Courts” when it is released in October, please contact Maria on 085 112 2388 or modernirishart@btinternet.com, making sure to mention that you are a member of the IWLA. Early reservation is recommended as the edition is selling out fast.

Members pre-ordering the print will receive two invitations to the formal launch later in the year with guests of honour Mary Robinson and Susan Denham.
