While events to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the GAA may have come to an end, there is at lease one further associated event yet to come in the Co.Tipperary GAA calendar, which should not missed.

This event is a truly exiting exhibition of photographs, which will go on show in the Tipperary Institute on Thursday next the 19th November at 8.00 pm. The exhibition is part of the overall 30th Anniversary celebrations which mark the founding of GAA club Dúrlas Óg .

This exhibition will feature a  large collection of photographs taken over the years, many of which have never been seen by the public and which will also depict many of the winning teams since 1979.

One of the highlights to be featured in this exhibition will be prints by the Thurles accomplished club photographer Mr. John O’ Loughlin LIPF, from his own private collection.

In 1979 Dúrlas Óg came into being, born of the frustration of committed followers of Gaelic games, who, rather than simply criticise the lack of interest in hurling and football among the youth of Thurles, set about lighting their own candle to beat the impending darkness.

Since its foundation in 1979 this club has gone from strength to strength and one of  it’s latest developments was the opening of the Pat Staklum Memorial training facility which incorporates Astro Turf and Hurling wall.
This interesting new exhibition will be opened officially on Thursday night by former All Star Hurler, Eddie Enright and is an event not to be missed by true lovers of both Gaelic games and photography.
