The first photograph taken anywhere in the world was in France in 1826. 25 years later Alfred Capel-Cure was stationed at Richmond Barracks, Templemore with the 55th Foot Regiment and had a keen interest in photography. He took many photos of Richmond Barracks and thanks to the research of John Reynolds we can now view these as part of a lecture given by John in the Garda College, Templemore on Friday October 19th at 8pm. All are welcome. Admission is free.

Craft Class/Community Project
The Craft class in Borrisoleigh will be commencing their community project in the park in the coming weeks.
This will be a mural that will be painted on a sheet of mdf and secured to a section of the wall dividing the park and the parochial property.
It is hoped that it would be a mural of houses, local attractions and maybe some business premises. If any businesses would be interested in making a contribution/ supporting this project it would be greatly appreciated. Materials such as paint and mdf will need to be purchased. Any businesses that support this community project will have their premises represented on the mural.
