Photos have been taken of the Hook Peninsula and of the waters surrounding the Hook Peninsula. We received over 100 entries under 4 different categories (Built Heritage, People from our Landscape, Coastal Landscape, Wildlife & Nature). From the entrants, images have been selected for exhibition by an independent judge, with 4 category winners and 1 overall winner also selected. The photographs will be exhibited in Carlow County Library from 28th March until 11th April. This exhibition will travel onwards to libraries in counties surrounding the south east of Ireland. Last year's exhibition was seen by over 20,000 people at 5 different venues, a great way of reminding people about all the Hook Peninsula has to offer. We have a fantastic set of photos taken by talented professional and amateur photographers alike which we are delighted to be able to share. The stunning images show the Hook Peninsula as the jewel in the crown of Ireland's south east. Come and judge for yourself, and see what image will steal a place in your heart.
