THE Dunhill Community Hall Committee are hosting a Historical and Cultural Exhibition called ‘Seven Villages – Copper Coast Cultural Exhibition, which will be open to the public from Saturday July 24 until the end of August, from 2pm to 5pm each day.
This Historical and Cultural Exhibition takes a look at some historical buildings in the seven Copper Coast Villages from the early 1800’s to the early 1900’s, and the people associated with those buildings. The seven villages include Annestown, Boatstrand, Bunmahon, Dunhill, Fenor, Kill, and Stradbally.
The information and photographs included in the exhibition were gathered over a period of eight months since last October with help from locals who live in these areas in a collaborative effort led by a member of the Dunhill Community Hall Committee, Mary Finn and edited by Cailean Finn.
There are many interesting accounts and photos to look forward to in the exhibition and indeed some of them are personal stories and pictures. For example, in Dunhill itself, the exhibition takes a look at Dunhill parochial House, Dunhill House, Harney’s Pub, the church, and the old school house. In Annestown, it takes a look at Annestown House, the Church, the Forge and the Obelisk.
The exhibition will also feature a high quality nature and landscape Photography Exhibition taking in the Copper Coast and county areas by a number of photographers from the Waterford Camera Club. This part of the exhibition is a celebration of the nature and landscape through the medium of photography and our landscape and seascapes feature heavily as well as nature from the wider county.
