23 July 2022, 

Meeting at the gallery, Brendan Matthews first stop will be closeby at Magdalene St. and to the Public House premises where Nano was born.

Here, he will outline Nano Reid`s family background along Magdalene St. and the Peter St. /Fair St. junction, elaborating on the wider context of Nano's paternal and maternal (Downey's), homesteads.

From there the tour will move to William Street to one of her former studios and where her father, Thomas Reid, held a number of properties; one of which today is of architectural heritage interest.

Following that the tour will take in the premises where Nano's first-ever solo show in Drogheda took place during the 1930`s, at the request of the Mayor, after its success in Dublin.

The Walk 'n' Talk will move down through Palace Street and Lawrence St back to the gallery where you can then visit the Collection exhibition where one of her works will be on view.

Tours are €5 and advance booking advised.
