One of the aims of my project on Paddy's Market was to make a short presentation to the Camera Club, which I did last Thursday night. I had selected 12 prints from the images I have already posted here and they seemed to go down reasonably well. I was in good company on the night, as a few other members had done projects on other parts of the City, as part of our "Contemporary Photography Group".

The main reason for the closure of the Market is to bring a more Cosmopolitan feel to the area, by attracting Cafes and Artists' workshops. Something similar was attempted many years back, without success, so we'll see how it goes this time round. However, the current residents seem to have grasped the concept pretty well already.
