Presentation of turned work to Killarney Town Council

A development project in Killarney town necessitated the felling of an oak tree. The Kerry Chapter vice chairman, Bob Cosgrave acquired some sections of the tree to see if members could turn pieces  from it that would show the Town Council what  felled timber could be used for.

Though the pieces had quite a few cracks and shakes we managed to produce a number of bowls and platters. The Mayor of Killarney, Councillor Donal Grady, and his officials were very impressed with the work and plan to make use of the Chapters skills to produce  presentation pieces etc. from suitable timber felled in the area.

Kerry Chapter presents bowls turned from Killarney oak and shows some of the members work to Killarney Town Council.
