Drogheda im­ages on view in the li­brary

Drogheda Independent - - PICTURES -

MAYOR Frank God­frey was on hand to open the Drogheda Pho­to­graphic Club ex­hi­bi­tion at Drogheda li­brary, with the dis­play run­ning un­til af­ter Christ­mas.

‘We should be very proud of the Drogheda Club as it has won more awards than any other pho­tog­ra­phy club in Ire­land - and in 2010, it was ranked third in the world!! That is some achieve­ment! Many mem­bers have rep­re­sented Ire­land in­ter­na­tion­ally too.

‘As you know, the club was founded back in 1971 by Paul Ma­her and Patsy Reilly. It has grown a lot since then. The work of the mem­bers ranges through all gen­res of pho­tog­ra­phy from land­scape to por­trai­ture, and so on. It is just won­der­ful to see,’ he added. He made men­tion of his good friends, Des Clin­ton and John But­ler, and to Adrian from Lim­er­ick, for whom the club has turned into fam­ily.

In Au­gust of this year, club mem­bers doc­u­mented all as­pects of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉire­ann in Drogheda and mounted an ex­hi­bi­tion in the AIB bank re­cently. These im­ages cov­ered mu­sic, singing, danc­ing, busk­ing, spec­tat­ing, and ev­ery­thing con­nected with the Fleadh.
