Don't miss your free 2013 photo calendar

READERS can get a fantastic Irish Independent 2013 wall calendar, free inside this Saturday's newspaper.
Packed with some of the best news and sports photography from the year just ended, the calendar contains images chosen by our team of top writers – and by readers, too.
A special poll on Independent.ie asked people to vote for their favourite picture of the year and you responded in your thousands. Find out on Saturday whether your picture was chosen.
Last year, we brought you a series of magazines called 'Irish Lives' – packed with great memories of decades gone by.
The theme for our 2013 calendar is 'Irish Life'. As well as great cultural events and a hosting of the first Eucharistic Congress in 80 years, 2012 was also a golden year for sport. The highlight for many readers was Katie Taylor's inspiring success at the London Olympics, where she won Ireland's only gold medal. It was also the year Ireland went to Poland for Euro 2012, and Donegal collected its first All-Ireland football title in 20 years.
Irish Independent Editor Stephen Rae said: "Some of the memories of those days are recorded in these fantastic photographs.
"We hope you enjoy them.
"Here's to a prosperous 2013 for all our readers and we hope there will be plenty of good times to enjoy with your friends and family."
