Second Get Together of Kilkenny, Carlow & Portlaoise Clubs for 25th November ’15

On Wednesday the 25th November we will be visiting Carlow Photographic Society for the second get together of Kilkenny, Carlow and Portlaoise clubs.
The idea is to present projected images of each town.
This year Kilkenny will portray 20/25 images of Carlow.
We need these images by next Thursday 19th.
If those members who have travelled to Carlow could bring their images, as we need to upload them for the presentation.
Each photographer will be required to talk about the image and why they took it.
We are to meet at Seven Oaks Hotel in the Cedar Room at 20:00 for tea/coffee then move into the Milford Room at 20:30 for the presentation when it then becomes vacant as it’s larger.
