About the Dublin Camera Club
The Dublin Camera Club is the oldest and largest camera club in Ireland. Founded in August 1945 when a group of Dublin photographers felt that the entry conditions of Photographic Society of Ireland were too high to attract those starting out in photography, they got together and decided that there was a need in the city for another camera club.
The inaugural meeting was held on November 5th in the old Jury’s Hotel in College Green. The meeting took the form of a monochrome lantern-slide lecture showing photos taken by Harry Braine on a trip through pre-war Holland, Belgium and Germany. The Club’s first president was a man named James Wilson. The Club’s headquarters are in a dedicated three-storey premises at 10 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2 which provides members with the perfect central location for the Club’s comprehensive range of facilities and activities. The Club contributes to the regeneration of the City by providing activities in the premises on weeknights and at weekends.
