November meeting 2018

Our November meeting was full of interesting chatter about recent trips out capturing the magnificent autumnal hues. Wasn’t it only stunning? Every leaf and branch was touched with magic from the warm dry summer we enjoyed this year. There are still many areas clothed in vibrant golds, reds and browns hanging on despite the many windy attempts to tumble them from their lofty heights! Go take advantage of the crisp dry days to explore new areas before winter changes our landscape and mutes natures colourful palette.

CLUB COMPETITION

The monthly theme for November was AGEING. Congratulations to Bernie Blaney taking 1st place with ‘The Exchange’;

HALLOWE’EN MAYHEM

Last weekend members decided to get in the ‘Spirit of things’ and join the thousands heading to Ballyvoile Tunnell in Durrow. A magnificent Hallowe’en Spooktacular occupied the normal space used regularly by Greenway enthusiasts.

Coloured lights, skeletons, blood and gore, ghostly appearances and all manner of scary and spooky Hallowe’en trickery filled the void. Blood curdling voices, high and fearful, and maniacal laughter came in gusting bursts in the silence between the clicking of locks and dragging of chains. This night was going to consist of pulling pranks on parents and scaring kids. And so it did!

Members of Deise Camera Club decided to avail of this opportunity and capture some Hallowe’en images. So we dressed up in our costumes, face paint and all, and partook in the mayhem all around us! Many times we got caught up in the merriment and frightened the daylights out of unsuspecting adults! Fantastic response was received!!
