Loughcrew Megalithic Centre

Phew! It has been hot with a capital H with temperatures of up to 35. 5 deg C and no rain for 15 days,
a rare old novelty for Ireland. In consequence I dug into the back of my wardrobe and brought out my light weight linen clothes.

Mrs H's exhibition of her wonderful paintings are now on display in The Loughcrew Megalithic Centre. I have been forbidden to display them until they have been released on social media however, I can show you what is going on the outside and tell you that we have met some lovely kind and very interesting people from all over the world as well as meeting up again with old friends.

We set up the exhibition on Saturday 30th June and were very fortunate in having two very exceptional friends who took on the work of hanging and arranging the eighteen pictures on show.
They were Maj the ladder and Patsy who directed the order of hanging with a few suggestions put in by myself. We started at 10.15 and were totally ready by 12.45 for the 1pm opening.

A twenty-nine year old Toyota Starlet that next year
will be a Road Tax free vehicle when it becomes thirty years of age.


Looking forward to seeing you all there at the
Tales from the Cailleach Exhibition

Where I will allow you to buy me
a coffee and a cake.

  6. I was delighted to be able to view Janes wonderful exhibition in real time, her capture of light and translation of wisdom in to artistic form is a visual joy. Of course a highlight was also a nice catchup with yourself. Buíochas ÁM
