The Irish Women Lawyers Association in partnership with legal publishers Hanna Fine Art is delighted to announce the 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 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 is 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 raises 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 was formally launched at an invitation-only reception at the Kings Inns, when guests were addressed by retired Chief Justice Susan Denham together with President of the Law Society of Ireland, Michelle O’Boyle.
