'Los Irlandeses y la Monarquía Hispánica (1529-1800) Vínculos en espacio y tiempo' or 'The Irish and the Spanish monarchy (1529-1800), links in space and time' is the title of an exhibition of Spanish documents of Irish interest. The exhibition opened last week in the castle of Simancas, home to the Spanish state historical archive. Simancas is near Valladolid and is the castle in which Red Hugh O'Donnell died in 1602. The exhibition consists of over fifty carefully chosen documents from the archive's collections, reflecting the density and complexity of relations between Ireland and Spain during this crucial period. The exhibition is curated by Dr Ciaran O'Scea, a regular contributor to the pages of Archivium Hibernicum, including the current issue. A lavishly illustrated catalogue, with articles by Drs O'Scea, Oscar Recio Morales (Complutenisan, Madrid), Igor Pérez Tostado (Olavide, Seville) and Eduardo de Mesa Gallego (UCD). In the picture, taken at the inauguration, 24 January 2013, are, from left to right, Dr Eduardo Pedruelo (Simancas Director), Ambassador Justin Harman (Irish ambassador to Spain) Dr Ciaran O'Scea and Dr José María Lasalle (secretario de Estado de Cultura).The exhibition is open daily, 10h-14h and 17h-19h and runs until 30 June 2013.
