Tribute to a special stretch of water

History buffs headed to DLR LexIcon last week for the launch of the Seapoint, Sea, Sky and Spires exhibition curated by Professor Eoin O’Brien.
“From photos of the past to the many recreational pursuits at Seapoint and not forgetting the majestic Martello Tower, this exhibition captures the unique elements that make Seapoint an idyll without equal,” says Prof O’Brien. The exhibition runs until September 17.
