Pieces of History: Shop fronts of Ennistymon
"Pieces of History: Shop fronts of Ennistymon" is a short documentary created as a tribute to the traditional 19th Century shop fronts of Ennistymon that give the town its unique character. It was produced by 5th Year Art students of Scoil Mhuire and Christian Brother Secondary schools in Ennistymon. According to the students “a number of brief interviews were conducted by students with local residents, whose genuine appreciation of the many facets of these unique structures have ultimately shaped this work. This collaboration between students and local residents highlights the ability of the arts to foster a sense of community while at the same time engaging us creatively”. "Pieces of History: Shop fronts of Ennistymon" will be officially launched on Friday 8th May at 6pm in the Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon.
