Historic Photo Exhibition at Shopping Centre a Tremendous Success

We would like to thank all those who contributed to making our photo exhibition such a success. Thank you to the Shopping Centre for the use of the unit, the volunteers and staff who helped with the display. Special thanks to Christina Flynn who organised this project. However the exhibition would not have been so successful without you the visitors (5,000 aprox) to whom we are very grateful. Thanks to those who purchased photo's or contributed to our donation box.  If you wish to order copies of any photo's on display during the exhibition, you can do so by calling to the Museum in Friary Street, Dungarvan or contact 058-45960.

Many thanks also to Carraig Donn for their generous shopping voucher. Congratulation to Bes Nolan, Cappagh winner of the voucher.
