We recently published some old and some ‘never before seen’ pictures of the Blessing of SS Peter & Paul’s Church in Portlaoise. The reaction has been great and we were delighted to be featured in last week’s Leinster Express. My father, Terry, was the official photographer for the event back in July 1965 and we still have the original Black & White negatives here in our archives in Roscrea. It’s fascinating to be able to look back on how things have changed in these past fifty years and also interesting to note that we still place great importance on having a visual record of special events. Photographs are the best way to do that.
