“If I were a Blackbird: An Exhibition on the lives of Thomas J. Kiernan and
Delia Murphy” This Exhibition celebrates the lives of the late Dr. T. J. Kiernan (Ireland’s first Ambassador to Australia) and his wife Delia Murphy, the renowned singer of such traditional songs as the Spinning Wheel, The Moonshiner and Thank you Ma’am, Says Dan. It uses photographs, drawings, books and records to tell the story of the lives of the Kiernans who during their years in Canberra sought to encourage a sense of pride in the Irish-Australian community, they emphasised the Irish role in the development of Australia and equally, the role of Irish-Australians in the Irish quest for Independence.
