Young snappers prove home is where heart is
STUNNING scenes, shot as people go about their daily lives in the Irish countryside have been captured as part of a competition to celebrate pride in local environments.
The 'Love Where You Live' competition received entries from all parts of the country, and produced some breathtaking imagery.
Ciara Drennan won the over-18 category for her work 'The Rock's Young Love', a dramatic shot taken from the Rock of Dunamaise in Co Laois. The winning entry in the under-18 category was Barrow Walk by Gearoid Gibbs, a tranquil study of two people walking along the River Barrow near Borris, Co Carlow.
The competition was run by An Taisce and sponsored by aluminium recycler Alupro Ireland.
The winning photographs are on display at The Greenhouse, St Andrew's Street, Dublin, until the end of the month.
