Staff Art Wall: Geraldine Duffin

Road Trip exhibition runs to 14 Feb 

Road Trip, an exhibition by Geraldine Duffin, has opened on the Staff Art Wall at University Hospital Waterford (UHW).  This exhibition displays a fascinating collection of photographs taken on road trips around Ireland, and continues until 14 February.  The Staff Art Wall is managed by Waterford Healing Arts Trust and aims to celebrate the creativity of HSE staff by providing an opportunity for staff to display their work at the hospital.  The Staff Art Wall is hugely popular among patients, visitors and staff.   Further details from 051 842664.

A native of Wexford, Geraldine Duffin works as a Healthcare Assistant in UHW.   A keen photographer, Geraldine enjoys exploring Ireland’s scenery with her camera as her constant companion, capturing discoveries which she then displays on her Facebook page Ger Duffin Photos.  Geraldine explains “When I’m not working I love nothing more than getting into my car and going off on a road trip to take photos.  On my most recent trip I went to see the Rock of Cashel and met Shannon, the famous Irish Wolfhound.  This road trip also took me to Galway, Westmeath, Croagh Patrick, Meath, Killarney, Mayo and Hook Head.  I hope people enjoy my photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.”
