  4. Hi Brian,

    There is a photography exhibition currently running at the National Photographic Archive in Temple Bar’s Meeting House Square called ‘Midland – Lár Tíre: Cycling the MGWR from past to present’ and features photographs along the 1,000km old Midland Great Western Railway (MGWR) network. The photographer, Pamela De Brí (my sister), cycled the 1,000km and recorded her journey as photographs and audio tapes.

    The exhibition will run until Sunday 24 May 2015 and a link to an article on the Journal.ie is included below.
