Thurles Past & Present Photographic Exhibition


So How Good Is Your Memory?

Tom Noone Reports:

Exhibition With A Difference

An exhibition with a difference will be launched in Thurles on Thursday of next week. Originating from an idea by Tipperary Libraries and carried to fruition by Thurles Camera Club, the exhibition will show, in very graphic form, the changing face of our town over a 30-year period, pictured in almost 100 photographs.

The members of the Camera Club put together a selection of photographs representing a range of buildings, businesses and various scenes in the town during the early 80’s, and then photographed the same locations from the same aspect over the past few months. The results will provide a fascinating “Do you remember?” slice of nostalgia for townspeople, particularly for those young enough to have only hazy memories of the street-scape from that period.

Thurles Camera Club has been in existence for nearly 40 years and its members have gained wide recognition for the quality of their work over the years, so there is keen anticipation for this latest venture. Both the Club and Tipperary Libraries are certainly to be commended for their initiative in accepting such a challenging task and bringing it to a successful conclusion with the month-long showing of the results.

The exhibition takes place in The Source and will be officially launched on Thursday 8th August at 6.30 p.m. by well-known Gaelscoil principal and local historian, Mr Jimmy Duggan.

The venue is The Source Arts Centre, Thurles; and a hearty Céad Mile Fáilte is extended to the community at large to attend the launch. The exhibition runs from the 8th to the 29th August 2013 and admission is free.
