Hi All,

I've only discovered the Irish APUG corner today. Nice! I'm a four-year old import to Ireland and I live in Glencormack, Co Wicklow - about 5 minutes from Bray and 1 minute from Little Sugar Loaf.

I've been shooting and printing B&W on-and-off for some 25 years but I only I switched to 4x5 about 5-6 years ago. I take a lot of digital too, but I really want to go back to my silver roots. Right now I am rebuilding my darkroom in my utility room.

Please keep me on your mailing lists in case of any events etc.

Happy New Year 2008 to you all.
Rafal

Hi Rafal and welcome to APUG, as you can see by the other threads we do meetup and shoot some stuff from time to time. We're plotting an exhibition and run workshops and stuff. Hope you can post often and happy new year to you too.

Hiya Rafal,
Welcome! As another "import" can I ask where you're from?
Happy New Year!

Hi Rafal,

Welcome to APUG, with you on board I think that Wicklow has the highest number of APUGers in the country! I'm just up the road on Bray.

Hello All,

Thanks for the many welcomes! Glad to know that if I run out of developer I can look for some a few doors down the road. :)

I didn't want to bore you with all the details of my travels, but since Catherine asked... I'm part of the Polish invasion in a way. I left Krakow 18 years ago for London and I slowly made my way to Ireland over the past few years.

The move from UK damaged my Gem 405 enlarger which was good news as I had insured it well. This allowed me to replace it with a nice DeVere 405 with an Ilford 500 head which is the centrepiece of the darkroom I am rebuilding at present. I miss not having Silverprint just a few stops away on the Underground - those guys had everything a B&W fan needed. But now I know where I can find you. :)

I look forward to meeting you in person in the future.

I use the same Devere Rafal, it really good.

I know what you mean about Silverprint, I've only been in it twice but order online. Awesome place.

I get most of my stuff there or in Gunns in Wexford Street, Dublin. They are great people in there, call in and say hello if you haven't already.

Hi Daragh and welcome!
Not only is there an Irish corner here.. but there's a Cork corner in the Irish corner! :D
We're due an outing sometime soon, and even if we haven't decided on a destination, hopefully you'll be able to join us.

Hi Peter,

Welcome to the Irish corner of APUG, with you on board I think we are up to 5 APUGers living in Wicklow. Wonder if that makes Wicklow the capital of APUG/Ireland?

Hiya Peter,

A very warm welcome, its good to have another member in the Garden county.
Hopefully we'll all get to meet at one of our get togethers during the summer?

I'm Dave, near Kilkenny (actually in Tipp, but nearest town is Kilkenny). I've been shooting film for over four decades, but the last ten years saw very little activity. My purchase last year of a digiSLR re-awakened an interest in film and especially Medium Format.
I recently bought a Pentacon Six and am slowly building up an MF kit based around Russian and German glass. Oddly enough, the first films I ever shot were all 120/220 on the family cameras of the day, so it's all a process of re-learning forgotten knowledge.

Hiya Dave and welcome..
I too came back to film photography via digital and went straight to a
MF camera.. trust me, it only gets better from here on :)
