Dundalk captures the world
Football isn't the only discipline at which Dundalk has been excelling, as the town's Photographic Society came ninth at the prestigious International Federation of Photographic Art World Cup.
Dundalk Photographic Society finished in the top 10 of 177 entrants at the competition, which took place earlier this month in Smethwick, England.
Founded in 1979, the society has only recently been noticed on the world stage - and the members are thrilled with its performance.
"To get into the top 10 is a big achievement," said Gabriel O'Shaughnessy, an entrant and a committee member of Dundalk Photographic Society.
"There are 88 countries affiliated to the competition, so to come ninth puts the whole country on the map, as well as the club."
Twenty images taken all over the world by members of the group were entered, with O'Shaughnessy's photograph having been taken in Transylvania.
