Alan Clarke's witty representations of Ross O'Carroll-Kelly can be seen in an exhibition entitled The Ort of Ross at the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, from December 1 to 24.

The gifted illustrator has captured the misguided, hubristic and ego-puffed escapades of the fictional southsider, who is the main subject of 14 books, two stage shows, a CD and myriad newspaper columns.

The Ort of Ross features an extensive selection of illustrations, prints, sketches, theatre posters and previously unseen curiosities relating to the life and times of this grandiose adventurer of the south side.

The exhibition can be seen on the third floor of Dublin's Powerscourt Townhouse Centre.
