Official opening of an exhibition of 75 objects.
Storm Desmond - an apt name if ever there was one - did little to dampen the spirits as Kennys Bookshop & Art Gallery celebrated 75 years in business this week.
In spite of the weather, a crowd of family, staff, friends and clients toasted the next 75 years at the official opening of our 75|75 exhibition - this engaging and diverse exhibition, curated by Dean Kelly, celebrates the fascinating history of this family-owned Galway business over the last 75 years.
The exhibition continues through the New Year 2016.
Our old and dear friend Ronnie O'Gorman delivered a wonderfully warm and energetic speech to mark the opening of this special exhibition. Watch on Kennys YouTube Channel now!:
