As a lot of you are aware, Photographer Suzanne Behan was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 2014, high grade Stromal Sarcoma. Her condition, unfortunately, has not improved and she is currently facing surgery in a couple of weeks to remove 3 tumours from her liver. She is in urgent need of specialist advice in Boston as Irish doctors are not a 100% where to go from here and there is currently no Sarcoma Specialist in Ireland.

Suzanne has been accepted as a patient in Bostons leading Sarcoma Treatment Hospital, however, she has not got the funds to travel to this specialist appointment or for the treatment. She is now in a position of having to depend on the kindness of the Irish people to help her raise these much needed life saving funds.

There is a Go Fund Me page set up for Suzanne and upon sharing it on facebook, Ross McKelvey very kindly offered his services of a workshop to help raise funds for Suzanne on Saturday December 1st.

Places limited so booking is essential, they will be booked up fast!

For those who may not be able to attend but would like to donate to Suzanne’s Sarcoma Treatment Fund, you can do so directly in the link below:

It is with deep sadness that the Carlow Photographic Society members were informed of the passing of our fellow club member Austin Kinsella yesterday. Austin has been a member of the CPS since the very beginning, 2003, and actively a huge part of the club. Chairperson for many years to being on our current committee to date.
A true gentleman, a man with an in-depth technical mind that was a huge asset to our club over the years. Such a love of photography that many a member gained from his ever sharing knowledge and encouragement over the years. A giving man, a man with a sense of humour that could take awhile to understand, but, when you finally grasped his wit, you ended up sharing many a laugh with him.
Austin, thank you for everything you brought to the club, a friend to so many, a name that will be forever talked about and fondly remembered, a true character, forever in our hearts.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Kinsella family at this sad time.

Reposing at his home in Cloydagh, Carlow (Eircode R93 C6C4) from 3pm on Saturday and concluding with prayers at 8pm. Funeral Mass on Sunday at 12noon in St. Patrick’s Church, Newtown, Co. Carlow Eircode R21 P206. Burial afterwards in the adjoining cemetery. Family flowers only, donations in lieu to the Irish Cancer Society and Carlow/Kilkenny Home Care Team.

A big shout out to one of our newest members Philip Reilly, Philip joined Carlow photographic society this year and is now sharing beautiful images with the members of the club. Here is a little bit about Philip and some of his images.

I have been interested in photography for over thirty years now starting with SLR film cameras and moving to digital in 2004. Despite this being my main hobby I have never owned a digital SLR camera preferring bridge cameras. This is because I do a lot of walking and cycling and these activities do not encourage you to bring a bag of lenses and other paraphernalia. At the moment I am using the Sony RX10 M3. I am mainly interested in landscape and wildlife photography. With early retirement at the end of October I intend giving my favourite hobby much more time so this may lead me to upgrade my equipment if necessity dictates. Here are three of my favourite older images.
