WEXFORD

The cream of Enniscorthy’s art scene went on display two weeks ago, when a special exhibition opened in the Presentation Centre.

Attracting a huge crowd, the opening night for the art show, which runs through this month, received high praise from all visitors who noted the high quality of each of the varied pieces.

The Enniscorthy Showcase Exhibition is a joint project between the Centre and The Denis Collins Gallery in Wexford, and features the work of over 15 artists from or living in the town. It consists of a number of different pieces – over 60 in total – ranging from sculpture, paintings, drawings, ceramics, photographs, prints and illustrations.

WICKLOW

Wicklow County Council has gone on trial in relation to breaches of health and safety that led to the death of two firefighters in a derelict building almost six years ago.

Brian Murray (46) and Mark O’Shaughnessy (26) died fighting a blaze at a disused ink factory at Adelaide Villas in Bray on September 26, 2007.

Wicklow County Council is the fire authority for the region and runs the fire service in County Wicklow. It is the prosecution’s case that the council failed in its duty to ensure the health and safety of its employees.
