Meta portrait

Meta Gale, who died recently in her nineties, was for decades an indespensible member of Dublin Camera Club.

Meta was Honorary Secretary of the club from 1960 until 1996 and served as President in 1969, the first of numerous women in that post. She was also a very accomplished photographer, gaining a title of AFIAP, an international distinction.

Meta lived in Haddington Road, Northumberland Road and, in recent years, St John’s House, Merrion Road.
