The High Loft Painting Group are holding their Annual Exhibition in Booterstown Pastoral Centre next Saturday, 8th June (10:00 am to 8:00 pm) and on Sunday, 9th June (10:00 am to 4:00 pm). All welcome.

Sister Maureen McMahon OP, a retired teacher from Sion Hill, was the founder of The High Loft Painting Group. It was born out of Sister Maureen’s love and appreciation of painting.  She brought together other like-minded art teachers who would paint during school holidays.  In the 80’s they began to use a stable hay loft of a small mews in Sion Hill School. The High Loft name came about as a result of the having to use a ladder to reach the High Loft.
