The World around Us in the Ring of Gullion Photography Exhibition
The winners of the Ring of Gullion Photography Competition have being decided after a lot of deliberation. Newry, Mourne and Down District Council and the Ring of Gullion AONB project are showcasing the entrees in the annual Photography Competition in Ti Chulainn Centre in Mullaghbawn until 7 December.
This year’s theme was “The World around us in the Ring of Gullion”. The entries included photographs of great buildings, historical sites, activities and the outstanding landscape in the area. The competition has grown from strength to strength with this year resulting in the largest number of entrees in the under 14’s category and also in the overall competition.
Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Chairperson, Cllr Naomi Bailie said, “Well done to the overall winner John McCabe and the under 14 winner Patrick Roe. Congratulations to Briege Roe and Louise Quigley who came second and third respectively in the competition.”
Cllr Bailie continued “I would also like to say well done to Ceire Conlon, Patrick Moan, Gerry McGovern, Brian Tomany, John Hutton, Laurentia McVerry, John Lyons, Paul Warwick, Jim Brady and Alannah Murchan as their photos will feature in the Ring of Gullion Calendar for 2016. The calendar should be available at the Winter Solstice Events in December, the Ring of Gullion Office in Crossmaglen and the Visitor Information Point in Slieve Gullion Forest Park.”
Next year’s competition will open from 26 January and will run until September. You can find out more about the Ring of Gullion on the website www.ringofgullion.org or follow the Ring of Gullion on Facebook to keep up to date on what’s happening.Back
