The chq building in Dublin's Docklands is hosting the 49th Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition. It's the first time that the travelling exhibition – which is on loan from the Natural History Museum in London – will go on display in Ireland. Organiser Eamonn Kennedy said the 100 winning entries will leave an impression on everyone.

"From a stunning image of rivers of molten red lava flowing from a volcano to a breathtaking glimpse of elephants gathered at a watering hole at an azure-coloured dawn, the images are inspirational," he said.

The exhibition runs until August 31, with tickets costing between €3.50 and €6.50, with free admission for children under the age of four.
