What a week we have had in Birr. Despite the inclement weather people still came and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with clients, past and present, at our pop-up Gallery in Market Square.
The highlight of the week was, as always, the parade and it didn’t disappoint. There was a riot of colours and sounds and the atmosphere was electric!
We were delighted to be part of the Artist Trail again this year. Family Portraits, Wedding Portraits and, of course, some of our land and sea scapes formed our exhibition. Photography is such an exciting art form – it captures real life, in the moment.
Our annual Walking Picture Trail took place on Tuesday evening. A collection of pictures taken of shop signs which had to be identified. It proved great fun for all those who took part and the winner of the West Clare Seascape was Tanya Coughlan. Her Dad was on hand to collect her prize for her.
Birr Vintage Week wouldn’t happen, of course, without the skills and organisation of the BVW Committee. A group of hard working volunteers, they pull together a professional and enjoyable festival with lots to do for every age group. Well done to everyone involved.
