Photographic exhibition

Each Thursday evening a group of teenagers get together at St. Mary’s High School in Brollagh to learn the skills of Photoshop to restore old photographs collected in the local community. The training will culminate with a photographic exhibition entitled “Everyday Life in a Border Community” in Cashel Community Centre on Saturday 16th March from 4pm-6pm. The photos worked on by the young people in the classes will be displayed, and the photos will be documented in a booklet which will be available at the event. Local entertainment will be provided and light refreshments will be served. A warm welcome is extended to all. This is part of the Gillaroo Communities Project funded by the International Fund for Ireland, Leitrim Development Company and Leitrim County Council.
