    Just saw this and it's nearly out of time so this weekend would be good -

    D James Galbraith's Ireland 1970 - 1997
    National Photographic Archive: 7 March - 2 June 2009.

    Further details here

    I haven't been so this isn't a recommendation to go but just an advisory that it's on.

    To be honest I didn't even know that we had a national photographic archive though had often thought did we - wooo hooo, One to keep an eye out for in the future.

    Anyone been already?

    Indian Sculpture Park
    Really great place outside Roundwood Village Co. Wicklow

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 22,569 ✭✭✭✭ Tallon

    Thanks, i never knew about that place.

    ill have to take a trip down at some stage :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 802 ✭✭✭ l pearse

    Your welcome Tallon. It advertises that the park closes @ the end of Aug.

    But it was all self service, even the shop!!!

    At the end of the trail, (which took us over an hour & a half) there was a barn, which was like a make shift photo gallery full of shots from India showing the sculptors being carved from enormous pieces of rock taken from the mountains.

    The small shop next door is worth a look....Never seen anything like it ..
    Check it out...
