SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW

Raheny Library's current exhibition for the month of July: the work of the Raheny Active Retirement Art Group.

I've just picked three examples but if you're in the area drop in and see the rest.



Ireland's Eye & Howth Harbour



An Old Woman of the Roads, by Padraic Colum

This is from Michael Gaffney whom people may remember for his work on the traffic light control boxes as part of the Dublin Canvas project.

So, the above is something old, if the participants will parden the phrase. I'm sure I'm older than some of them myself.



Meanwhile in the children's section of the library there's something new. Well, a mixture of the old(er) and the new as you can see.



A great project where the young people meet their seniors and then retell their stories in this exhibition.

I won't spoil it by going in any closer that this general shot, but it is a heart warmer.
