The 100 photographs on exhibition feature one person with a Galway connection born in each year from Ireland's Easter Rising to the present day.

It is a celebration of the progression of a nation through it's people.  The subjects selected are a random but representative snapshot of Galway's now diverse and vibrant society.

After 6 months showing in The Galway City Museum where they received critical acclaim,  all 100 photos are now in Boston, USA for an exhibition which will be launched there on 24th August in the Irish Cultural Centre.

Location: Irish Cultural Centre, 200 New Boston Drive, Canton, MA02021

It will move to Portland Maine in September and then on to Boston's iconic City Hall for the month of October. (details to follow)
