TPS Meeting Tuesday 4th June 7.30pm in Molloy’s carpark.

Hope you all enjoyed the Prize-Giving night last Tuesday – congratulations to all our winners and a special thank you to the committee who organized everything from the venue and the certificates and medals – well done. Here comes the summer!  If the weather stays this good for the rest of the summer, we’re in for some great nights of photography. Why not kick off this summer with a visit to Howth Harbour this Tuesday, June 4th.  Meet in Molloy’s carpark (outside the Taxi office in the carpark) – we’re leaving at 7.30pm sharp, so please be early and don’t forget your cameras!  Looking forward to seeing you there! Or you can make your own way out the Howth. Any other suggestions from members would be welcome, and if the weather is too bad to go out, we can still meet and have a chat over a coffee and share tip, hints and tall tales! Cheers Derek
