Old Carlow Photos Book 2 and Exhibition

By Dermot O'Brien


This whole idea started from a facebook page called Old Carlow Photos where people summitted their photos and this has grown enormously over the years. The publication of Book 2 is a huge testament to the value people place in their childhood memories of life on the street, in school and in the family home. Photographs have that happy way of reaching a part of you like no other. In this Book2 and photo exhibition you will not be disapointed. 

We had a successful project in 2014 which helped to launch the first book and the magnificent photographic exhibition held in Carlow Cathedral Parish Centre. Three rooms and the long hall were needed to display the photos.

The printing costs of the photographic exhibition are very high. This exhibition will be open to the public for 3 days, free of charge. Any excess income is used to offset the cost of the book print. The book will be on sale locally and online.

A major photographic exhibition accompanies the book. The exhibition features all the photos from the book in both hard copy and digital form.

The photographic exhibition is an integral part of the book project and needs to run in tandem with the book launch which will be November 18th in Carlow Cathedral Parish Centre.

We all love a good story and the stories submitted by the people of Carlow and the county are amazing just as you the supporters of our project are. Míle buíochas as ucht bhur gcuid iarrachtaí le hairgead a chruinniú.
