52nd Annual Exhibition at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast 2009


The USWA held their 52nd Annual Exhibition in the Waterfront Hall, Belfast in October 2009.

They were delighted to have the honour of Her Excellency the President of Ireland Mary McAleese to officially open the exhibition. Accompanied by her husband Martin they had time to admire what they thought was a most impressive show.
