A photographic exhibition of Rathfarnham village and castle is being held in the castle itself, from 19-24 May, and it will include many shots relating to the time when it was a Jesuit house of formation. The Jesuit Archives in Leeson Street collaborated with Rathfarnham Castle (now managed by the Office of Public Works) and the South Dublin County Libraries in putting the exhibition together. The event was organised by Age & Opportunity. For a flavour of the exhibition see: PicasaWeb.
