Councillor James O’Sullivan, a member of Greystones Town Council, has welcomed the news that ‘Grape’, a new art and photography exhibition is to open at Greystones Harbour. Welcoming the initiative taken by local residents, Councillor O’Sullivan said this would be a welcome boost for the local community and a great way for new artists to make a name for themselves.
Speaking in the week leading up to the launch, Councillor O’Sullivan said, “This initiative by Greystones Tidy Towns is certainly a very welcome development for the harbour area. It is community projects like this that really bring out the best that Greystones has to offer.”
“Over the past number of years, Greystones Tidy Towns have proved to be a leader in community projects in the town and this new outdoor exhibition shows how they are continuing to play that vital role. I would encourage all artists and photographers to get involved with the upcoming project to make it a real success during the summer months.”
Councillor O’Sullivan stated, “As I continue to play a role on the Town Tourism committee, I have no doubt this exhibition will be of benefit to the town in developing awareness of Greystones as a tourist destination. Over the summer months, with the help of projects like this, increased tourist numbers will help our local businesses and enhance the community atmosphere for both visitors and residents alike.”
“As we move into the heart of the summer, I commend the Tidy Towns for their continuing success and look forward to attending the launch of the exhibition on July 1st ”, concluded Councillor O’Sullivan.
