Castleisland Camera Club will hold the first of what its members plan to become an annual general meeting this week.
The meeting will take place on this Thursday night January 11th at 7.30pm in the NEWKD office at the Crageens.

‘See What We’re About’

“New members are very welcome and we would encourage anyone with an interest in photography to come to the meeting and see what we are about,” said the club’s PRO Breda McGaley.

While much of the club’s focus went into its celebrated exhibition and coffee / tea charity day at The Market House last November, its members also went on field trips and held talks in the course of its first year of existence.

Sell-out Success

That exhibition proved a sell-out success as the work of the members walked out the door and it raised €1,300 for Glebe Lodge Residential Centre.

Furthermore, it put down and marker for the club’s start as we mean to go on attitude. Their open invitation to people interested in photography stands for this meeting and for the seasons ahead.

We wish them A Snappy New Year.

Tríd an Lionsa / Through the Lens on TG4

Also on Thursday night comes the second season of the revealing series Tríd an Lionsa which examines the early Irish photographic collections of images from the period 1880-1902.

This new series examines six early Irish photographic collections. There is much that we can learn from them about our image of ourselves, and our past.

The series asks why the photographs were taken, and by whom? Who was the viewer, who was being viewed?

What was included in the frame, and what was left out? Presented by University of Limerick historian Dr. Úna Ní Bhroiméil and produced by Sibéal Teo.

The programme will go out on Thursday night, January 11th at 8pm on TG4.
