Hall location for closing event 20th June, Tracton

Community groups have been working in 22 historic graveyards across south and east Cork since February (adding to the previous works done in Aghada). Together we have worked in snow, sunshine and rain. Work has just begun really but a lot has been achieved already. Next Thursday 20th June an exhibition of work to date will be held in Tracton Community and Arts Centre. This will be an informal and friendly event, sharing experiences, meeting one another and telling stories of people, place and time. 

The closing exhibition is not about getting everything done for Thursday. Keep going with current work but come along Thursday night to meet your fellow participants.

The exhibition will open at 7.30 and will include photographs, rubbings and stories from each of the graveyards surveyed.
