Killaloe photographic exhibition captures community spirit

MEMBERS of Killaloe Ballina Community and Family Resource Centre will showcase a stunning array of photographs at Scariff Library from Monday, February 5 to Saturday, February 24.
The photographs are taken locally in areas of interest by participants of the resource centre’s community education photography courses.
The exhibition features photographs of a number of locations in the area, including historic sites, local businesses, the River Shannon and Lough Derg, the main river crossing in Killaloe Ballina and St. Flannan’s Cathedral.
The course was taught by photographer Selina O’Meara, who was contracted by Tipperary Education Training Board under Community Education Facilitator Deborah Ryan.
Funding for the course and the exhibition was provided by Waterways Ireland with the official opening of the free exhibition taking place on Thursday, February 8 at 7pm in Scariff Library Gallery.
The Killaloe Ballina Family Resource Centre was founded in 2002 to help combat disadvantage and social exclusion by improving the quality of life for people living in the nearby area and to provide family supports for all within the community.
Providing groups, courses and services, the centre works with local people to identity and meet on-going needs including various courses throughout the year, room hire, computer and printing hire, employment schemes and a community cafe.
On-going courses include photography for beginners, advanced photography, driver theory classes, mixed arts and crafts, computer classes and french classes for adults.
Killaloe Ballina Family Resource Centre is located in the Green in Killaloe and is part-funded by Tusla with the premises project funded by Community Finance Ireland.
The upcoming exhibition will reside at Scariff Public Library and for further information contact Brona Moriarty on 061-374741.
