RETROSPECTIVE
Photos from County Monaghan

By Donal McEnroe

ÍONTAS ARTS CENTRE, CASTLEBLAYNEY

Friday 22nd September – Thursday 19th October

This year Íontas will mark Culture Night with a special event celebrating the work of Annyalla based photographer Donal McEnroe. Over the last 45 years Donal has documented events, people and places in County Monaghan. It is a unique photographic archive of a county and people that has undergone significant social change in that time. This exhibition focuses on a pre-digital age of analogue technology and artisanal craft, hallmarks of a gentler pace of life. However, this was a border community that lived in the shadow of ‘The Troubles’, a reality reflected in photographs taken by Donal in the aftermath of the Monaghan and Castleblayney bombings of the mid 70s.
