Brendan O'Connor: Ryan's cultural revolution: slinging sanitised art for dollars, yo
Patricia Ryan sounds like the kind of person you'd want in charge of Limerick City of Culture.
She is certainly a woman who understands that delicate intersection where art and commerce meets. And she understands that if there is going to be conflict, it's easily solved by just getting the artist to change his art. It's only art after all. They all make it up anyway, and shure it's all meaningless, isn't it?
Patricia, it has emerged, expressed some concerns about a rap song written by two lads from Moyross and recorded. She liked it and all -- but she just felt the lads weren't conveying the right sense of Limerick.
