Drug and alcohol abuse captured for Coláiste Mhuire photography exhibition


Students at Coláiste Mhuire, Mullingar, displayed an impressive exhibition at Mullingar Arts Centre last Thursday as part of their transition year programme. The young men had to dig deep to create photos that explored the theme of the effects of drug and alcohol abuse among others.

Photographer Shelley Corcoran has been teaching TY students at the school for six years. “Every year the students complete a project and I do individual shots and group shots with the boys and teach them the basics of photography,” she told Topic.
