To celebrate Yeats Day Sligo CTC will be filling their blog with poems from the gifted Yeats. Trainees are taking photographs of significant places associated with W.B. Yeats poems for the blog. Yesterday Lisa and Janell brought a group of trainees on a photography outing to Glencar Lake and Waterfall. It was a beautiful day and we took some gorgeous photographs of the waterfall and the landscape surrounding it. We also went to the pier at the Lake Isle of Innisfree, an uninhabited island within Lough Gill where Yeats spent his summers as a child. This was a very peaceful tranquil place and we got some truly beautiful shots of the lake and the island.

Earlier in the week, Matthew got some lovely photographs of Benbulben, Drumcliff Church and Yeats Grave which is located in the Drumcliff cemetery. Karl, Philip and Andrew took a trip down to Sligo town to have a look and take photographs of the Yeats Statue and the Yeats Murals. Next week we hope to take photographs of Dooney Rock, Slishwood, Hazelwood and Knocknarea. We will be posting these photographs on the blog between the June 7th to 13th.
