This black and white photography exhibition ‘Kenmare Carnival 1961’ captures the fun and joy that this annual event brought to the people of Kenmare every summer. The original photos were discovered in the personal archives of local man, Tim Sheehan. He donated them to Kenmare Library, who gratefully accepted such a treasure and are proud to present this exhibition in partnership with the Carnegie Arts Centre. The exhibition is free to the public and will run for the month of May as part of the Bealtaine Festival, Ireland’s national celebration of the arts and creativity as we age. Come along and enjoy a nostalgic visit down memory lane and see Kenmare as it was at the start of the 1960s. You might even recognise a face or two!
Exhibition runs from Tuesday, 3rd May – Friday, 25th June 2022. Admission free. Everyone welcome.
