In February, we gathered for a lovely evening in O’Donovan’s Hotel to celebrate the photographs of the year and to enjoy each other’s company over a lovely meal. We kicked the evening off with our presentation to Donie Lucey, Fundraising & Base Cordinator from the Irish Community Air Ambulance (now Critical) who joined us to accept the cheque for the funds we had raised for this important charity.
The evening culminated in the presentation of POTY awards. Eamonn McCarthy won first prize and also had one of his images selected as Photograph of the year. Patricia Ronan was runner up and Kathleen Hayes and Geoff Greenham shared third place. We were also delighted to present Susanne Svalefelt with an award for being Club Person of the Year. This was in recognition of the work she has done in transitioning our club website. Thanks also to Nicholas Cooper who ran the website for many years.
