Coming Together by Staying Apart



Covid-19 has brought significant changes to our world.  After the Taoiseach’s March address asking us to come together by staying apart, our lives changed forever.  Local Ballina family Paul, Gavin and Sophie Brennan walked the streets of Ballina while many of us stayed home to keep our loved ones and most vulnerable safe, and saw the changes Covid has wrought on our town first hand. 

This exhibition shows, in images and words, how powerful those changes have been – images of isolation, fragments of hope, the contrast of bleakness and colour.  Now, as we gather once more, we can take courage and move forward to shape a brighter future for our town. 

Exhibition curated by local photographer Henry Wills.

Admission free. 

This exhibition will take place when Level 2 restrictions return.
