Percy French

The Percy French Gallery includes a short video of music and songs of Percy French. Cavan County Museum has been very fortunate to receive from the Percy French Society in Bangor a large and varied number of Percy French related items for display purposes. Material on show includes six of Perch French’s original water colour paintings, as well as a large amount of photographs and letters of Percy’s. Cavan County Museum thanks the Percy French Society for their support and co-operation in assembling such a vivid tribute to Cavan’s favourite adopted son.
