Photo by Séan Mullery
Banners created as part of the Sligo through the Decades travelling exhibition were on display in the Hawkswell Theatre during the Easter break. The ten banners give a historical snapshot of events that made the headlines in Sligo over the last one hundred years since 1916. The exhibition will be on display in each of the seven schools which participated in the project over the coming months.

Fiona Fox, Librarian and project co-ordinator for the exhibition was recently interviewed by Claire Ronan about the project for Irish TV Sligo Matters. The exhibition has since been on display in the Knocknarea Arena for the musical event, Macalla. Keep an eye for it as you never know where it will pop-up next!
