A new business premises was officially opened last Saturday afternoon at Hibernian Way in Mallow.

Daisychain Photography, Mallow, owned by Jenny Griffin and Andrew Healy, was officially opened by family friend and retired Irish Army soldier Michael Kelly, who dressed in uniform for the special event. Well known Mallow piper Gerard O'Callaghan was on hand to play at the ceremony which was attended by family and friends, including Ronnie, Donna and Andrew Griffin, Pauline Kelly, Bridie and John Healy, Regina McCarthy and face painter Rachel O'Leary.

On Friday evening Jenny and her team held a networking night with various business groups present, including Food Capers, MacDonald's, Barry's Mens Wear, Katie's Newsagents, Jen Paul Transport, The Rugged Man and Simon Community representatives.

Daisychain Photography consists of a reception area, photographic studio, office, toilets and kitchen and is available for such events as festivals, conventions and corporate meetings and occasions.

Michael Kelly, who fought in the Jadotville conflict in the Congo in the early 1960s, said, on performing the opening ceremony, that he was humbled and honoured to do the honours, and wished Jenny and Andrew success and happiness in their new venture before cutting the tape, knocking three times on the front door and opening the outlet for business.
