[Christy Brown (Hugh O’Conor) carried by his father (Ray McAnally) in My Left Foot (1989)]
The Christy Brown archive.
Under the hammer in London.
About to be lost to a
left footer FOREIGN bidder.
Not so fast.
“Last night we made an appeal on the RTE news. This morning I received an email from a man offering to donate a substantial sum towards the cost of the Christy Brown archive. Then we contacted the National Library to see if they would be interested in mounting a joint bid for the archive at the auction in London. This evening the archive is on the way back to Dublin. It’s a great result for the city – and it proves, once again, how generous the Irish really are.”
Trevor White, of the Little Museum of Ireland.
