Book tells of extraordinary lives at special needs training centre

'OUR EXTRAORDINARY Lives', a limited edition book, was launched last week at the St. Aidan's Saoirse Training Centre in Gorey Business Park.

The photographic book, and DVD of short animations, was produced by the Post Training Unit participants, with the support of artist Michael Fortune, between September and December.

The book features various collections of photographs, ranging from documentation of the participants during workshop activities, photographs of objects important to the participants, and more fun images of themselves superimposed with famous celebrities.

The project was funded and supported by Wexford County Council's 'Artist in the Community Scheme', an Arts Department programme, and St. Aidan's Services.

Among those taking part were Teresa Barden, Liam Breen, Brendan Carroll, John Doyle, Joanne Doyle, Paul Keane, Sean Kinsella, Brian Hooper, Mary Molloy, Katie McEvoy, Raymond O'Brien, Sandra Wickham, Tanta Woods, Darren Whyte and Laura Walsh.

The book was officially launched by Sinéad Barden, Arts Officer with Wexford County Council.
