Invitation to Launch & Prize giving 22nd August

By Deirdre Burns

From Corries To Coast’ is a photographic exhibition  celebrating the Geological Heritage of County Wicklow. The photographs featured were selected from the over 150 entries received to our public competition, organised jointly by the Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council and The Wicklow Uplands Council. 

The aim of this project is to acknowledge and celebrate the diversity, beauty and significance of geology in county Wicklow and to raise awareness of the contribution it continues to make to our quality of life, our health and our wealth. Photographs were submitted from young and old and feature a wide range of areas throughout the county from the Sugar Loaf to Silver Strand, from Bray to Ballinastockan. 

 

Official Launch & Prize Giving: SAT 22nd August @4 pm

With  Cllr. John Ryan, Cathaoirleach, Wicklow County Council

VENUE: BLESSINGTON  LIBRARY
