A massive thank you!

With Mr Michael McLoone

Mr Michael McLoone, Manager, Donegal County Council with myself and Emer

I don’t remember a word I said but I know I forgot to thank half the people that I should have!

Me and my castle girls, we missed Caroline who only flew in from New York that morning.

Great turnout from the Donegal Town ladies

Well, it’s almost two in the morning and I am winding down from the high of the exhibition. There was an amazing turnout, over a hundred people came to support us and it was just so overwhelming. I want to thank everyone who made the effort to come in such poor weather and also for all the help and positive responses I received. I met old friends and made new ones too. It was a fantastic night and I’m so glad so many people enjoyed it and all the hardwork we put into it. Again, thank you all for your support and well wishes! Now, we have to go and raise the bar that wee bit higher.

The Final Countdown

Okay guys. The exhibition is tomorrow! Our work went up last night at the Abbey Centre . Now, it’s quite a small space and it’s a bit crowded for 24 framed photographs to share space on the walls but we’ll see how it goes down tomorrow!

I’ll leave you with this lovely jump flying shot of Orla cos i’d like everyone to send me some good wishes on angel and fairy wings that it all goes well. One thing’s for sure, my MIL bought enough wine to float an ark so if you’re coming down to support us, make sure you have a designated driver!

See you tomorrow.

It’s official!

Ready or not, here I come. The details of the upcoming exhibition are up at the
Helen Allingham Gallery, Abbey Centre. I am nervous yet excited. Again, I want to thank everyone who has helped me with this exhibition and I hope I don’t get laughed out of the place!

This rainbow is an outtake from my choices. But I love the colour and the fuzziness anyway.

I hope to see you there. The exhibition will run from November 8 to 22, 2008 and we will have an evening drinks reception to launch it on Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 pm. The county manager, Mr Michael Mc Loone will be opening our exhibition.

I am also donating part of my proceeds from any sales to the Irish Kidney Association for all the support they’ve given us over the years.

We’re back!

We’re back from our holidays and it’s amazing how much difference a week makes. The weather has definitely turned wintry, i think, bypassing autumn altogether! The changing colours of the landscape make for such great photos though! We had a wonderful time in Cork and the great weather really made our holiday. I’m excited to get back to some photography work and the upcoming exhibit is taking up a fair bit of my time. The flyers have been ordered and the framed photographs will be ready tomorrow. I can’t wait to see them. Cross fingers for me. The countdown to the 8th of November starts now!
