Tuesday, May 29th – Prize-giving and End of Season Party

This Tuesday, May 29th, we are meeting in Molloy’s pub, Tallaght Village for our Prize-giving ceremony and end of season party!  The winners of the internal monthly league competitions will be announced and awarded their prizes.  The winners of the Best Four Portfolio competition will also be announced.  Then it’s time to let your hair down and enjoy the rest of the night as we descend into the end of season party with platters of finger food available! Thank you to everyone who attended our AGM last Tuesday.  It was a positive meeting with very constructive suggestions about progressing the club and its members.    There was one piece of unfinished business from the AGM which will be concluded this Tuesday, at Molloy’s. This Tuesday’s meeting is the last of the season – but fear not photography fans…  we will continue to meet each week for photographic outings during the summer.  We will meet in Molloy’s pub car park each Tuesday evening for 7.30pm and venture off to somewhere with some photographic interest e.g. Blessington Lakes, Howth Harbour, Dalkey, Dublin/Wicklow Mountains etc.  Any suggestions for Tuesday evening outings are welcome but bear in mind that we are limited with travelling time […]
