One of the most intereting developments for the year was the setting-up of a relationship with a group of people living in Slovenia. Members of the Ballyduff and Ballybunion Active Retirement Groups communicate with correspondents in Slovenia by e-mail. In the summer of 2010 members of the group from Slovenia came to visit Ballyduff and Ballybunion.
Tom and Mary Allen, from Ballybunion, meet two of the visitors from Sovenia. They are regular correpondents.
Bob Scott, of the Ballyduff group, took the visitors on a tour of North Kerry. Here they are at Kilmore ...
and on the strand.
Later the group met the members from Ballyduff to whom they have been writing. Here Connie O'Carroll welcomes them to the Ballyduff Family Resource Centre, which is the meeting place of Ballyduff Active Retirement Group.
This Blog is about the painting and photography of North Kerry Artist Bob Scott. The Blog looks at individual paintings, providing background to them in photographs, other related paintings, and description of their subject matter. Other blogs look at broader issues and events in community life in North Kerry, to provide insight in to the area which inspires the work. All twenty of the available stand-alone pages are used. Some link to "Picasa" albums that show all of Bob's work, organised into categories. Others show his studio / gallery and exhibtion space, and there are photos of three-dimensional work, and the garden, in which these pieces are exhibited./ Don't miss the FREE DRAW - "Win a Painting of North Kerry" just by sending Bob an e-mail about any aspect of the site!
