Watermarks Exhibition
watermarkThe designing of tides and the tales left behind”

Watermarks is a new look at the Wexford maritime environment hosted by the Wexford County Library. The art works by the students of the Wexford Campus, IT Carlow represent a variety of aspects of the shifting, sheltering water as it flows, streams and meets the sea at the heart of Co. Wexford.

From composing unique sea maps, making models of the coast and casting fish of the ocean, the students have captured the character of our river and it’s immersing destination. Not only the natural world have been taken into consideration but also our community as the works include video stories of fishing and the unique sailing cott An Cruidin from the Southend Family Resource Centre, mounted on the library roof.

This dynamic exhibition will run from May 2nd to June 10th.

Architects Give Their Time for Free


Isabel Barros Architects are pleased to announce their participation once again in this year’s “Simon Open Door” initiative.
Each year, the initiative sees architects nationwide give up their time for free to offer hour-long consultations to members of the public in return for €50.
Anyone looking to build, renovate or extend their home or business may be interested in this initiative.

Isabel Barros Architects will offer an hour long consultation in return for a donation of €50 to charity. All of the money raised goes towards the work of the Simon Communities of Ireland.

The Simon Communities of Ireland work with people who experience homelessness and housing exclusion in Ireland.

With almost €300,000 being raised for the charity over the years, the wonderful partnership between the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland and the Simon Communities of Ireland provides hundreds of consultations with a registered Architect every year.

“This is an excellent initiative where anyone can get practical advice on a range of issues, while helping the homeless,” said Wexford based RIAI architect Isabel Barros. ”For us, Architects, it is a unique challenge but people always get amazed about how much can be done in one hour.”

You can sign up for an appointment with Isabel Barros Architects on either Saturday 11th May or Sunday 12th May, just log in at
