If you were passing Merrion Square Park on Friday 24 February, you would have seen over 300 self-portraits by children in Ireland hanging on the railings.
Children from all over Ireland invited to send in their self-portraits to be part of our portrait programme and the chance to be part of a special once off gallery of 100 pieces, to be displayed on the railings of Merrion Square Park this month.
Our last session before Christmas really was absolutely packed!
