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.
