Kerry County Museum and Kerry Geo-Adventures are delighted to officially launch ‘By Hammer, Lens and Pencil. North Kerry Landscape in the eye of Frederick James Foot’ on Saturday 25 August at 4pm. Guest speakers include Prof Patrick Wyse Jackson and Museum curator Helen O’Carroll. This is a free event and all are welcome. ‘By hammer, lens and pencil’ is a tribute to Frederick James Foot, an Irish geologist, who spent time between 1856-1859 surveying North Kerry landscape. The exhibition is organised by local geologist Gosia Shaik-Horajska, founder of Kerry Geo Adventures, in partnership with Kerry County Museum. On display are his field-sketches and hand-coloured illustrations from North Kerry, with supporting specimens of minerals, rocks, and fossils observed by Frederick James Foot during his time carrying on extensive and detailed fieldwork. Also on display are fossils found during archaeological excavations of Ballycarty Passage Tomb,  a selection of maritime objects from the Eddie Roe collection, as well as the spectacular ‘Kerry Diamond’ on loan from Kerry Library. ‘By hammer, lens & pencil’ runs until Saturday 8 September.
