Shakespeare's Portrait

Today's Irish Times has an article by Martin Wall about "claims that the only picture painted of William Shakespeare during his lifetime hung for years, unrecognised, on the walls of a country house near Dublin" (Newbridge House near Donabate). The article refers to Channel 4 News last night in which Old Columban Alec Cobbe talked about the 'Cobbe Portrait'.

[Added 14.03.09 : In today's Irish Independent, Old Columban Kim Bielenberg interviews Alec Cobbe about the portrait]
