Gallery Visit

Transition Year students from Coláiste Íde agus Iosef (Abbeyfeale) visited the exhibition currently held in the Red Door Gallery in Newcastle West entitled 'The Old Pier at Union Hall'. This exhibition hosts a wide range of Irish and international artists including Robert Ballagh and Martin Gale. Our students were struck by the connection between all the exhibits and the unique concept behind the artistic initiative. Vicki Nash (Arts Committee Chairperson) and Keith O'Rahilly (Art teacher) both spoke to the students about the origins of the work which made the visit all the more meaningful for the students
