Keep It Local, Keep It Beautiful competition – Best photo showcasing local beauty

We asked members of the public to send us their best photograph showcasing local beauty. We had 140 entries, and it was very difficult to narrow it down to an overall winner. So much so that some truly great photos had to be ruled out, so well done to all who entered!

We picked this photo titled ‘Stop and smell the leaves’ by Yvonne O’Brien as the overall winner. IT was the expression on the cow which won us over – totally living for the moment.

The runner up was this fantastic shot of St Eunan’s Cathedral in Letterkenny by Peter Blake.


For the under 16s, we have joint winners with these beautiful shots.



The following are a selection of some of the other photos we were most impressed by. Well done to all.
