The Galway study group will have an organisational meeting Monday 3 October from 10-11 PM in 091Labs, 47 Eyre Square, 1st Floor (just above Kennedy’s Pub). We’ll talk about why we’re taking the class, what our backgrounds are, and share tips on study materials we’ve found so far. We’re following the advanced (homework) track.
Regular meetings start the following Monday, 9-11 PM, through the end of the course (18 December). The study group is free and open to everyone.
While not strictly an 091 Labs-affiliated event, this was announced first on our mailing list and we will have several members attending. Anyone interested in the forest, the castle or photography is very welcome to attend (and your kids too), no matter your level of photographic advancement. Full details from photowalk.ie follow:
No better chance to photograph a ruined keep in a mysteriously misty, wet and rainy forest (because really, when isn’t it wet, rainy or misty here) is to be found than in Galway City on July 2 coming, from 10am-3pm. Attractions in the forest include the marvellously-intact Merlin/Doughiska Castle, the ruins of crofters huts and other buildings. And trees. Lots of trees.
Where are we meeting?
At the Supermacs opposite the entrance to Merlin Park, at 10am (map).
I have children. Can I…
Yes! Children are absolutely welcome to come to this photowalk.
The plan for the day calls for a relaxed photowalk: Meet at Eyre Square, travel to the forest, take photographs, walk around and travel back to the city for either a late lunch or drinks. Photographers on all levels and interests are very much welcome to this event!
How to get there:
Galway’s Merlin forest, castle and hospital are long-established institutions that are easily accessible to travelers from both Dublin and Galway City. The hospital is served from Eyre Square by the #4E bus and is located on the main Dublin road just inside of city limits.
If you are travelling into Galway on the M6 motorway, exit left at the terminus and take the right hand exit of the next roundabout (map).
Email email@example.com, tweet @bhalash or call me (Mark) on 086 190 8088 for information, suggestions or directions on the day.
There will be an informal public meetup for all interested in 091 Labs’ current developments this evening at 7pm in The Cellar Bar & Restaurant on Eglinton Street (across from Brown Thomas). Things to be discussed will be our continuing search for a new space, and upcoming events such as 3Dcamp in Limerick. We will also be discussing workshops which we can run in the interim between now and finding a new home.
Hope to see you there!
