as part of The Festival Francais de Portarlington.
The café was decked in blue, white and red proclaiming Liberté, Égalité & Fraternité.
|Interior of The French ¼ Café|
As soon the paintings were hung...
the display of cards and posters arranged....
the first guests began to arrive.
Amongst the gathering were old friends, models...
Fiona, the model for Boann
Fred, the model for Dian Cécht.
and new friends who had travelled from north and south.
As people departed, others arrived.
The night wore on and the exhibition became a party as, camera forgotten, goodwill
and conversation flowed.
All too soon it was time to close and turn the space into a café again.
Watched over by The Ever-Living Ones it really was an evening of Liberté, Égalité & Fraternité.
My thanks to all at The French ¼ Café especially Eamon, Richard & the wonderful Éoin.
