Southend photo group's 10th show
Labour Party leader Brendan Howlin officially opened the 10th annual exhibition of Southend Photographic Group in the Friary Hall.
The club which was formed in 2009 by a group of local photography enthusiasts, meets once a month for two hours in the Southend Family Resource Centre in Maudlintown.
Members learn techniques and tips from each other through demonstrations and sessions on photography during the winter months while also embarking on outings to places of photographic interest in the summer.
The exhibition featured scenes from locations abroad captured by members on their holidays this year as well as scenes and people of local interest.
The photographs currently adorn the walls of the Family Resource Centre, offering locals and visitors a chance to see the work of the club.
Members of the Southend Thursday Art Group also had work on display in the exhibition.
Deputy Howlin praised the standard of the exhibits and congratulated the photographic group members on their 10th anniversary. Group chairman Tony Doyle thanked the Resource Centre for its support and Colm Ó Muirí of the Centre also addressed the attendance.
