After a two year hiatus St. Brigid’s Photo Exhibition has returned to the Blanchardstown Liabrary. Despite a number of members having to lie low due to Covid, we had a very good attendance at the official launch of the Exhibition. Chairman Paul Redmond opened the event and after welcoming everyone he gave a brief background of the Club and outlined its activity in the greater Blanchardstown area and its ongoing engagement with the local community.
Our guest of honour on the night, James Scobie, who is the current holder of the Press Photographer of the Year award (2nd year running) thanked the Club for inviting him to the opening and wished the Club every success in the future. He said that he was very impressed with the quality of the photographs on display and congratulated all the members who had taken the shots and presented them so well. Paul, on behalf of the Club, presented James with a Cheque for Down Syndrome Ireland.
