Ballinglen Art Exhibition

2nd August – 31st October 2021

Marking twenty years of making with Ireland’s leading artists, Stoney Road Press comes to the Ballinglen Museum of Art for an exciting exhibition. 2nd August – 31st October.

From Dorothy Cross to Brian O’Doherty, and Patrick Scott to Leah Hewson, Stoney Road Press has worked with a heady roster of artists since 2001, when a conversation over coffee between artist James O’Nolan and printmaker and gallery owner David O’Donoghue led to the studio’s foundation.

Now, to mark their twentieth anniversary, the Stoney Road team have commissioned new work and selected some stunning favourites for a landmark exhibition at the new Ballinglen Museum of Art.

Amnesty International 60th Anniversary

In 1985 Seamus Heaney was invited by his local Sandymount branch of Amnesty International to write a poem for International Human Rights Day that year.  He initially declined because he felt that no poem of his could do justice to the suffering of the prisoners whose dossiers he had been given to read. But then he relented and wrote the poem about a mythical republic, where the dictates of conscience inform every decision of the State.


This poem ‘The Republic of Conscience’ has become Amnesty International’s unofficial anthem, and in 2003 it was the inspiration for the creation of the Ambassador of Conscience award. Begun by Bill Shipsey, this is an Art for Amnesty Award, the highest award that Amnesty International can bestow. Past recipients include Václav Havel, Nelson Mandela, Harry Belafonte, Mary Robinson, U2, Peter Gabriel,  Malala Yousafzai and most recently Greta Thunberg.

To mark the 60th anniversary of Amnesty International today, 28 May, Stoney Road Press in Dublin have created a magnificent limited edition broadside of the poem, which you can buy here.

Seamus Heaney Broadsides

Letterpressed poems printed on handmade Irish paper and watermarked with Seamus Heaney’s signature.

From the 1970s onwards, Seamus Heaney worked with many small presses and printmakers to produce broadsides and limited editions of his poems and translations. Often these were produced in collaboration with artist friends; some featured new or specially commissioned poems, others drew on existing works – but all signalled the pleasure Seamus took in such partnerships, and in giving his words an extra lease of life beyond the pages of a book.

In celebration of this tradition, the Estate of Seamus Heaney has undertaken this new set of broadsides in partnership with Stoney Road Press, featuring his best- loved poems.
