Mullingar Camera Club launches Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann photographic exhibition

Mullingar Camera Club are set to launch a photographic of the recent Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2022 which held in Mullingar during last August.  The exhibition launches in the Atrium, County Buildings, Mullingar on Tuesday 21 March from 6pm – 7.45pm.

The photos on display will highlight the collective talent of Mullingar Camera Club members. It is an opportunity for members of the hugely active camera club to present their images to a wider audience. The works will be on display until Friday 14th April.

This exhibition plays an important part in documenting the history of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann and of Mullingar. Speaking of the event, Camera Club member Noel Murphy said that the display;

“Not only connects us but, records our past, reminding us of people, places, feelings, and events that took place here in August 2022. It is said that an exhibition tells a story and a picture tells a thousand words. We not only hope that the images on display fulfil that statement but that also they grab your attention and inspire you to respond physically by making images of your own.”

The photos on display were selected by a committee comprising of comprising of former Irish Times and award-winning photographer Tom Lawlor, Fellow Irish Photographic Federation (FIPF) and IPF Vice-President and member of Mountmellick Photographic Society Dominic Reddin together with Bob Morrison FIPF and Associate Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) and IPF Distinctions Secretary. After a thorough selection process the committee chose the images they felt best recorded the everyday activities of the Fleadh, from street performances to concerts, from pub sessions to volunteers and from TV to the general public.
