Ex-MF solicitor joins board of National Gallery

Solicitor Terence McCrann is one of three appointments to the board of the National Gallery of Ireland announced today (25 April).

McCrann is a retired partner with McCann FitzGerald LLP and a qualified solicitor with the Law Society.

He has over 30 years’ experience of advising boards in the commercial and non-commercial State sector on the exercise of their statutory powers, issues of corporate governance, and their interaction with Government departments

The other new board members are:

  • Dr Ciarán O’Carroll (lecturer in sustainability with both Technological University Dublin and Dublin City University) and
  • Caroline Grant, a HR specialist who is also a member of the Institute of Directors.

The appointments, for a five-year term running from 16 April this year, follow a public call for applications on www.stateboards.ie and an assessment process.


The board is currently chaired by Mary Keane, a former director general of the Law Society.

Welcoming the new board members, she said that 2024 was the 170th anniversary of the establishment of the gallery through the National Gallery of Ireland Act 1854 and the 160th anniversary of the opening of the gallery.

“We also commence a new five-year strategic phase in 2024, and these appointments bring a breadth of experience, which will enable our important work,” Keane concluded.
