Scariff snow scene for Irish Cancer Society card

A SCARIFF-based photographer is looking ahead to the festive season and plans to celebrate his native town and support charity in the process.

James Treacy has just launched a Christmas card in support of The Irish Cancer Society with the image depicting a snowy Scariff. “We have the card designed but we are looking for a firm of printers to print the card as cheaply as possible and I have approached the Society of Photographers in London of which I am a member for advice in hiring the best printer at an affordable price,” Mr Treacy said.

Mr Treacy remarked that he is usually very busy at Christmas organising tours to the Holy Land. The pandemic meant that last year he was at home for Christmas for the first time in almost a decade. At the moment, he is getting ready for Christmas 2022 when he hopes to bring a group back to Israel and Palestine on pilgrimage.

“I am also running a dating tour to Ukraine in August 2022 and bookings are coming along nicely for this too,” Mr Treacy added.

The Christmas cards will be available in Bane’s in Scariff and at the Market House and Mr Treacy said he also plans to sell some door-to-door.
