Three parishes set to mark 150 years
THE bank holiday weekend will see the beginning of the celebrations of three local parishes.
Powerscourt Parish, Kilbride Parish and St. Mary’s Parish are all celebrating 150 years in existence this year and to mark the special occasion the three parishes have come together to create a year of celebration.
On Friday, October 24, the Parochial Hall in Enniskerry will be transformed into an art gallery filled with the work of some of the most talented artists in the area.
An invitation only opening reception will take place on the Friday with the doors of the hall being thrown open to the public at 11.30 a.m. on Saturday, October 25. There will be some 250 paintings on display over the weekend from watercolours, pastels, oils to pencil and charcoal drawings.
A broad range of artists will display their work from some well known local artists to those exhibiting for the first time.
The hall will be open from 11.30 a.m to 5 p.m from Saturday to Monday, October 26.
All of the paintings on display will be available to buy with the maximum price being ¤ 750.
All proceeds from the exhibition will go towards further celebratory events throughout the year.
