"Branching Out" an exhibition by Western Branch IPS members opens at Galway City Museum

We had a wonderful time at the opening of our exhibition on Saturday 16th April, a very sunny afternoon at the Galway City Museum. John Killeen of "Lets do it Galway" opened the exhibition for us and had high praise indeed for the creativity and craftsmanship involved in the variety of work on show. UPDATE: THE EXHIBITION CLOSED EARLY DUE TO RENOVATIONS AT THE GALWAY CITY MUSEUM. APOLOGIES TO ANYONE WHO DID NOT SEE THE EXHIBITION DUE TO THE SHORT NOTICE OF CLOSURE.
