A HEARTBREAKING photograph capturing the anguish felt by Caroline Donohoe as she followed the coffin of her murdered husband Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe on his final journey has been acclaimed.

The snapshot taken at the State funeral, which saw thousands of gardai line the streets of Dundalk, Co Louth, is one of a series of images that landed Julien Behal the accolade of AIB Photojournalist of the Year 2014. Behal, who works with Maxwell Photography and is a frequent contributor to the Irish Independent, also won first prize in the politics category for his image of Taoiseach Enda Kenny, entitled 'Out of the frying pan...?' (left).

Mr Kenny last night presented the accolades at a ceremony in the RDS Dublin, with the panel of judges saying that Behal had displayed a "collection of images to be very proud of".

Frank McGrath, of the Irish Independent, was also highly commended for his image of Roma mother Loredana, with her boy Iancu Muntean (2) in her arms, showing the distress caused after he was taken into protective custody amid questions about his identity.
