Aosdána, the affiliation of creative artists in Ireland, elects 13 new members by postal vote October / November 2020. A postal vote process took place in 2020 in lieu of a General Assembly. It is hope that a General Assembly will take place in 2021.
The 13 newly elected members are: Kevin Barry (Literature); Gerard Byrne (Visual Art); Pat Collins (Visual Art); Jim Doherty (Music); Margo Harkin (Visual Art); Martin Lynch (Literature); Gina Moxley (Literature); Valerie Mulvin (Architecture); Mairead O’hEocha (Visual Art); Arthur Riordan (Literature); Liz Roche (Choreography); John Scott (choreography) and Jennifer Walshe (Music). This brings the membership to 248 members with the sad passing of Julia O Faolain and Felim Egan since the time of the elections.
