So Friday I got a quick call from one of the organizers of the Hopkins Society to do a few group shots at their festival on Saturday. The annual festival is a  celebration of Gerard Manley Hopkins connection with Monasterevin.  Hopkins  was an English poet, Roman Catholic convert, and Jesuit priest, whose fame established him among the leading Victorian poets, whom frequented Monasterevin on many occasions. This years event takes place in the beautiful settings of the Baronial Hall at Moore Abbey and Monasterevin House were Hopkins spend much of his time in Monasterevin. If you have an interest in Hopkins and his work, you can check out the Monasterevin Hopkin’s Society HERE.

  1. Interesting group. I find that when shooting groups, I take the numerous shots in order to get one where everyone’s eyes are open. Looks like you took the correct number of shots!

    I’ve always struggled with getting good shots of groups. What an “eye opener” no pun intended. I also noticed at least one of them looked excited about the thought of getting a pint. Great pics.
