I was really delighted with the huge number of people that came along to my opening yesterday evening. Thanks to all of you who gave up your time. You all helped to make the event a success. Anyone would be hard pushed to find such a group of interesting and entertaining people gathered in one room anywhere on this planet.
I cannot express my thanks enough to Tom Mooney, Editor of The Echo group of Newspapers, for giving of his time so generously and for his extraordinarily kind words about my work. Thanks to Geri for the use of her amazing venue and for being so hospitable.
Special thanks to Sinead Barden of County Wexford Arts Dept., Catherine Bowe and Elizabeth Whyte of The Wexford Arts Centre, Curators (not of this show) Carla Sanchez O'Connell and Anya Van Gossen, Denis Collins of The Denis Collins Gallery, Mairead Linneen of The Presentation Centre and Brian Fay, artist and lecturer in DIT for all giving up your time to attend at a time that is so busy for the arts in Wexford.
I am sorry that I cannot mention each and every one of those who came along by name, but rest assured I really do appreciate you coming and it was lovely to talk to you all. If you want to see a few pics of the evening you will find them under my news/events tab. Apologies that I have not got a shot of you all :)
