The Saint Munchins Photography Club recently launched this year’s photography exhibition last Wednesday at the Belltable Arts Hub called ‘Moments in Time’. The exhibition showcased the works of the club’s members and will continue to run until March 29, allowing everyone to see the hard work done by the club.
Invited to the event was Mayor James Collins, who congratulated everyone on their work, as well as rugby player Aoife Doyle, who officially opened the exhibition.
Chairperson of the Photography Club Tony Ryan said “The club has been great fun and we’re very proud of our work here. We’re always open to new members, and depending on the week we could have meetings, guest speakers or outings together as a group. I first got involved through my friends and coming to a meeting one day, and eventually, I was voted as Chairperson of the club.”
St Munchins Photography Club was set up to nurture and support people who have an interest in developing their photographic skills. The club is now in its seventh year, with its members meeting up every Monday night at 7:30 pm at St. Lelia’s old school in Krnyon Ave. It was created for people who have a general interest in photography, both film & digital.
Anyone thinking of joining Saint Munchins Photography Club is more than welcome to come along on any club night and have a look at what they do, there is no charge for your first club night. They welcome members from all walks of life, all age groups and all levels of ability.
St Munchins is an amateur club and though professionals are welcome they may not enter club competitions. The club runs from September to May in line with the national (IPF) standers, with its annual membership fee is €20 with a weekly door fee of €2. Only paid members are eligible to participate in club competitions, exhibitions, training courses or club outings.
The 2019 programme for the club is now online and the next club night will take place this Monday night and will be about how the exhibition is going.
