Calendar out now!

AROUND the year in 80 pictures. That has been the achievement of Peter Hickey, the Dublin ladies football official photographer.

He has produced a 2014 calendar. All proceeds go to the official charity of Dublin Ladies Gaelic Football, the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre.

The calendar covers all floors – from the Dublin Féile to all the county teams, from U14 to senior, plus the Tesco club championship.

Taking the pictures was hard enough. Selecting the final 80 was even harder. "Five-thousand images were taken in 2013. It was no easy task whittling it down to eighty," explains Peter.

"I had great help from Patricia Monahan. We were like X Factor judges deciding what stayed in and what stayed out. We often had different views. And we were just about still talking at the end of it all.

"There were many highlights throughout the season. I'll never forget the scenes at the end of the All-Ireland Minor Championship final replay when Galway beat Dublin after extra-time. Such a contrast of joy and despair.
