Tiny Little Histories: Parkway Camp

June 23, 2023 @ 8:00 AM July 1, 2023 @ 5:00 PM

Tiny Little Histories Parkway Camp

To begin its Tiny Little Histories programme for 2023, The GAFF presents Parkway Camp, an exhibition of paintings and photographs in the Parkway Shopping Centre starting this Friday, June 23

The exhibition, created by a group of women from the Traveller community, is inspired by memories from the camp which was located on the grounds of the Parkway some decades ago, housing members of the O’Reilly family.

Over the past two months, artists Melanie O’Rourke and Julianne Hennelly worked with 12 participants, putting together a collection of new paintings and photographs that tell the story of this very close family.

Some photographs from the original site will be exhibited alongside new portraits of family members which now boasts five generations, headed by the remarkable Hannie O’Reilly, aged 83 who gave birth to 22 children.
