Update on Irish Horse

With great regret we have taken the difficult decision to cancel Irish Horse, our forthcoming exhibition.

We would like to thank all our lenders for their support and understanding. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our primary concern and we continue to follow government advice. We are encouraged by your continued support, and will reopen the Gallery as soon as circumstances permit.
