Commenting on the appointments, Minister for of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin, said: “I wish to congratulate all three appointees and wish them the very best during their terms which will cover the exciting redevelopment of the Crawford Art Gallery, a flagship project under my National Development Plan programme of investment.

"The new members will be joining the Board at a dynamic time for the organisation as we move onto the delivery of our major Capital development.” 

The appointments follow the submission of a planning application for the redevelopment of the Crawford Art Gallery with Cork City Council. 

It is seeking permission to build a new Learn and Explore facility, a new entrance and a 'dramatically improved' public realm.
