Over the last few weeks that has been an outpouring of public and media concern about the proposed sale of the Beit paintings and we believe that now is the time for all stakeholders to come together to seek the best means of saving Russborourgh and the Beit Collection for the Nation.

Among the speakers will be Ian Lumley (An Taisce), Dr John Loughman (UCD), Dr Michael Ryan (former Director, Chester Beatty Library), and a representative of the Irish Georgian Society.
