A dream come true is how Wicklow photographer Fran Byrne described the opening of his new gallery in Roundwood last Thursday night.
Joined by family and friends at the event Fran said ” I have been toying with the idea for years along with publishing a book, so I took the leap and here we are.”
Patrick Casey officially opened the gallery and said “Through the photography Fran had become a great friend, it is not unusual to look out my window at anytime of the day or night and see Fran walking around looking for a good angle.”
The gallery is in the centre of Roundwood and shows not only how beautiful Wicklow is but the whole country. Pictures are keenly priced starting from €22 (Framed), so if your still thinking of a Christmas present Fran might well be the man to see.
Fran also organises trips for photographers both experienced and novice.
