The Sliabh Gearr Granite Symposium opened at the Norman gallery on the Saturday 17th October 2009. It was a beautiful autumn afternoon and a good crowd attended. Jeremy opened the show and Niall Deacon also movingly talked about the conception and the workings of the symposium. Jeremy then led the crowd around all the work and gave a great talk about each piece and each artists also said a few words about their work.

Thanks to Jeremy Hill for a great opening, the committee (Padriag, Cliona and especially Niall) for organising the symposium. And not forgetting Anne Deacon for feeding us so well during the symposium.
