The new Sloane Gallery is opening with our very own local artist, Leo Casement’s new exhibition. FRIDAY 7th JUNE at 1pm. Neil Shawcross will launch the event. Tea and coffee, chat and a visual treat ….
KNOW YOUR PARK! As the long evenings come in, this is an event not to be missed. Expert Simon Boyle, who leads the team at Delamont Park, will be at Killyleagh Library on Wednesday, May 29 (7.00pm – 800pm) when he will give an illustrated talk on the rich natural history of the Park. A few surprises will be in store for many who regularly walk around our beautiful park – in nature what you see is often the result of knowing what to look for, and where. Please support this FOLK event and by doing so, help secure the future of our library. Remember using the library, especially borrowing books and attending events, is vital to safeguarding its future. Admission to this event is free.
(Reminder: If it is due, please renew your FOLK membership (£5), when you next call into the library; thank-you – or do it right here online by clicking link above)

Well last Friday’s event (Killyleagh 100 years ago) was BRILLIANT – Clive Scoular was in his usual tip-top talking form and there were 40 people present – not three bad for a lunchtime event ! The exibition of photos is still in the library and well worth seeing. Also there’ll soon be a video clip posted of the craic …. watch this space …. And now …. Clive is going to do the same talk to the local children – not sure of the details of that yet but will let you know.
