The Presence Of Absence Photographic Exhibition Evening - Coleraine

Free Draw - Win a Framed Print from this Exhibition!

To be in with a chance to win one of my framed prints from this exhibition all you have to do is:

1. Attend the exhibition and take a selfie beside your favourite print
2. Like and share my facebook page:
3. Post your selfie pic to my page along with the title of the print and why you like it.

On completion of all three, your shot will be placed into a album named contestants. 

At the end of the exhibition the winner will be  randomly chosen from the entries by the curator of the Riverside Theatre and notified through Facebook.

Just a reminder that I am holding my first solo photography exhibition this year in the foyer of the Riverside Theatre in Coleraine. It is called ‘The Presence of Absence’ and is a framed and beautifully presented series of 100 photographs of Ireland's abandoned ‘big’ houses, workplaces, factories, hospitals and cottages.

Over the past 10 years, I have made a mission of researching, accessing and capturing these buildings that most of us drive past or see from a distance through overgrown hedges. The detail of dusty lofts, coats in wardrobes and stunning Georgian staircases have been thoughtfully and beautifully recorded for posterity.

Yours sincerely,

Pete Irvine

#SaveTheDal - New Year's Parade - Saturday January 3 - Ballycastle

"Dr Gavin McDonnell MB, BCh, MD, FRCP. the leading consultant neurologist specialising in Multiple Sclerosis, has offered to help and advise Moyle Council and ‘Save the Dal’ campaign on proposals to secure improved provision of respite services for patients suffering from MS and other neurological conditions.

This is excellent news, Dr McDonnell is recognised as a leader in the field of neurology, and he played an instrumental role in setting up the main outpatient clinic for MS at Belfast City Hospital and the new purpose built unit at Musgrave Park. His contribution will therefore be very valuable and must carry great influence with Health Trust decision makers."
