Coming home exhibition at Tullynally castle in Ireland

Exhibition starts on the 4th August and runs to the 14th August. Open from Thursday to Sunday and from 1pm to 6pm. Around the 14th of August I am hoping to have "a meet the artist tea and cake". Get in touch if you are interested in meeting up. I plan to meet lots of old friends and make some new ones. This exhibition is very exciting as it is my first Irish solo show and 25 years since I seen a lot of my friends from Ireland, where I grew up.
The castle tearooms and Gallery is run by my old school friend Nicola Lane and her fella Karl Somers. They are both fabulous all round artist, musicians and chefs. We have had some very long phone conversations over the last few months, getting the arrangements ready for the show and catching up after many years.
I have also put up a facebook event page for the exhibition and very excited that friends will be going to visit Ireland to see the show. Irish tourism has just been boosted, by the exhibition.
I will be in Scotland before the exhibition, staying with my ceramic friend Alex Johannsen, she is going to help me make some ceramic pieces, then we are both going over from Scotland by ferry to Belfast, then travel down by bus. Which I thought might be a nice way to get there, the ferry being only a few hours. If I fail to make the booking we will row across in a small boat.
