17 from the ‘70s – an Exhibition of signed Black & White Photographs, from the private collection of Kieran Moloney.
Kieran worked as a professional photographer in Chicago for over 20 years and, as a frequent, local visitor to Listowel Writers’ Week, he captured both the photographs and the autographs of these local characters. The exhibits originally featured at an event as part of a fundraising initiative to support the establishment of the Kerry Writers’ Museum.
The seventeen photos featured in this unique exhibition tell the story of the early contributors to Listowel Writers’ Week and, from gracing the walls of Kieran’s offices in Chicago, they now grace the walls of the Kerry Writers’ Museum.
This exhibition is available to view at Kerry Writers’ Museum from Culture Night, September 17th 2021 onwards. Listowel Writers’ Week is planning to host an event to celebrate the photographer and his work in the coming weeks – date to be announced. Check out our Facebook page for updates https://www.facebook.com/writersweek/ or phone 068 21074.
Please call the Kerry Writers’ Museum on 068 22212 before visiting to ensure access to the exhibition is available.
Save the Dates! Listowel Writers’ Week 2022 Festival takes place 1st to 5th June.

Our next meeting for Munster parents living with no surviving children is taking place on Thursday 30th September at 7pm via Zoom. This meeting is hosted by Helen Murphy.
It gives these parents who are grieving the loss of their only child a space in which to connect with other parents who are sadly on the same journey. During a recent survey one parent from this group said;
“I can honestly say that I never felt more at ease than in the company of this group of parents who have also experienced the death of their only child, There was no judgement and no one was afraid to talk of their children’s lives and deaths for fear of upsetting the other”
If you know any bereaved parents living with no surviving children who would like to join this meeting please get them to contact us on 085 288 8888 or email@example.com. As always Anam Cara offer their services free of charge for as long as needed.

Dig for ancient Viking treasure at Kerry County Museum. Put your hard hat on and get your hands dirty to experience life as an Archaeologist. So come and join the Big Dig this weekend. Families will get to take part in their very own simulated 40 minutes archaeology excavation.
It promises to be a fun-packed family event where children will get a chance to discover how archaeologists excavate and hopefully find some artefacts.

In our role as the national transmission system operator, EirGrid is responsible for a safe, secure and reliable supply of electricity – now and in the future.
As we look to the future, we are making the grid ready to carry 70% of Ireland’s electricity from renewable sources by 2030. To make this possible we have to strengthen the grid and expand and upgrade the existing transmission system. You may know of national EirGrid projects or there may be grid projects and infrastructure proposed in your own area or community and as a result you may have questions about electric and magnetic fields or EMF.
To enhance people’s understanding about EMF and answer their questions we are hosting an information webinar on the topic of EMF on Wednesday 29 September at 7 p.m.
To learn more about the event and register your attendance, please click here.
We would be grateful if you can share this invite with interested people in your network and we look forward to hosting you at the event.
Further information about the webinar is available below.
Environmental Aspects of Electric and Magnetic Fields of Transmission Lines
Like other aspects of manmade technologies, extremely low frequency EMF are measured, researched and closely monitored by national and international agencies tasked with safeguarding the public. These agencies set the health and safety standards to which EirGrid adheres.
At EirGrid we know from listening to people and communities that there remain questions around EMF and the operation of the electrical transmission grid. These questions relate to what EMF is, research in relation to EMF, the electricity grid and your health and best practice guidelines and regulations.
This webinar aims to answer your questions and enhance your understanding about EMF and the national electric transmission system developed, managed and operated by EirGrid.
