Photography with the Ballybeen Women's Group

Samhain: shadows, sounds and stories

 

Each of the photographs in the exhibition depict landscapes and sites in Northern Ireland that were important to the Celtic people and where beautiful objects from our Celtic past, now on display in our National Museums, were discovered. The photographers are all from the Ballybeen Women’s Centre, Dundonald in east Belfast. Following a visit to the Ulster Museum, they worked with professional photographer Mervyn Smyth of Belfast Exposed to visit and photograph sites like Navan Fort just outside Armagh and the Lough Foyle site where the beautiful Brioghter Hoard was unearthed.
