Thurles Library is proud to present an exhibition of ‘Replicas of Archaeological Artifacts’ - the exhibition will open on Tuesday, February 10th at 7pm and will be launched by Mattie McGrath TD. All are welcome to attend.

The exhibition will run until Tuesday, March 10th during library opening hours.

Created by Edward Moten-Letsome the exhibition features objects in stone, wood, leather, copper and silver; from Early Man to Egyptian, Greek, Inca, Aztec, Olmec and Viking period.

Edward Moten-Letsome has also crafted agricultural items from our own Irish heritage.

Edward says: “It was during one of my many walks on Bothar na nGall in the south Tipperary mountains that I was inspired to create these artifacts”.

Edward was born at Tullaskeagh, Roscrea and moved to the picturesque Gaeltacht village of Newcastle in 2006. He is a self-taught sculptor and artist.

The exhibition should be of particular interest to schools.

Edward uses the artifacts on display to illustrate his forty-minute talk, which covers the evolution of Early Man and his progress up to the Viking period.

Edward hopes that the people who visit this free exhibition will derive as much pleasure from it as he has from sculpting the objects.

If you are interested in bringing a group to this exhibition please contact Thurles Library on 0504 29720.
