DCCI are saddened to learn of the passing of Seán O’Farrell, former Craft Development Officer

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Seán O'Farrell, former Craft Development Officer with the Crafts Council of Ireland (now trading as Design & Crafts Council Ireland). He was a gentleman and a very special colleague.

Seán worked for many years during the 1980's / 1990's in the offices of the Crafts Council, based at that time on the top florr of the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre in Dublin. From there, he travelled the length and breadth of the country making contact with craftspeople in their studios, developing a deep understanding of them and their working life and trying to help them whatever way he could.

Our thoughts are with Seán's wife Ann and family at this sad time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
