It is the 200 year anniversary of the establishment of Powerscourt National School which was previously housed in the 'Schoolhouse' in the heart of Enniskerry Village. The 'Schoolhouse for Art' thought it only fitting to continue in the theme of erudition by offering an insightful appreciation of Paul Henry during the 60th Anniversary year of his death.
