“Kerry On Camera” – A Great Success

On Friday 13th June, Jackie Healy-Rae, T.D., officially launched the Killarney Camera Club’s “Kerry On Camera” exhibition in the Killarney Outlet Centre. The exhibition consists of more than thirty images taken throughout Kerry by Killarney Camera Club members in recent times.

Friday 13th did not prove to be unlucky, as there was a great attendance at the launch. Tadhg Kelleher, Club Chairman, welcomed everyone, in particular Jackie Healy-Rae, T.D.; family and friends of the Club members; and representatives from neighbouring Camera Clubs from Mallow, Kenmare and Listowel. Tadhg thanked the Club members for their hard work and dedication in bringing the exhibition to fruition. He said “The exhibition represents the work of both experienced and inexperienced photographers and while some of the experienced members could go on to be professional photographers, the images produced by the inexperienced members showed excellent promise for the future.” 

A special word of thanks from Tadhg went to Paul Sherry, Manager, the Killarney Outlet Centre for his support and sponsorship of the exhibition; and also to The Heights Hotel for its continued support. Paul Sherry said “Here at Killarney Outlet Centre we are delighted to host such an exhibition. Killarney Outlet Centre is home to many exhibitions, which make great use of the light filled space, and they add a unique attraction to offer the many shoppers and visitors of the centre”

On declaring the exhibition officially open, Jackie Healy-Rae said “I want to congratulate everybody in the Killarney Camera Club who was involved in producing this fantastic exhibition and I wish the Club continued success in the future.” Jackie spent some time viewing the exhibition with Club officials and members and expressed particular admiration for many of the images.

The “Kerry On Camera” exhibition will run in the Killarney Outlet Centre until the end of June. The Killarney Camera Club meets fortnightly on Thursday night from 7.30pm in The Heights Hotel – except during July and August. New members are always welcome.
