My photos on exhibition at Eigse festival in Newcastle

Each year the village of Newcastle in South Tipperary has a festival called the Éigse  festival which celebrates the   life in the Breac Gaeltacht of Newcastle. This weekend event consists of lectures, walks and music events  relating to Gaelic language, ecology and heritage or the area.

My contribution to this years event was a talk on the  Historic Graveyard  at Newcastle  and  also many of my photos,  that were taken during the  graveyard recording  late last year, formed part of an exhibition at the local community hall.

A big thank you to the organisers of the event, especially Michael Desmond  and to all who turned out to the talk and to see the photos.

  2. I have family from the Newcastle, Tipperary, area. I visited the graveyard in May when visiting from Texas. I would love to see the results of the
    graveyard project. Are they posted anywhere? Thanks so much.
