Blarney Photography Club managed to get a 4th place position in a challenging competition of 25 clubs in the IPF Shield. Henry O’Brien was awarded an honorary mention for his Colour Print. This represents significant progress for the club. The selection committee put in a lot of hard work selecting and organising printing and finishing the works. The members who supplied images including all those who didn’t make the final selection did a great job. To jump 14 places from last years 18th to be just a few points outside the top 3 is brilliant. With 1st place going to Dundalk and 2nd Palmerstown and 3rd place to Offshoot from south county Dublin Blarney had to fly the flag for outside The Pale! Special thanks goes to Fergal, Cian and Charlie who helped with the selection Rory and Paul for additional duties including setting the files to print. Ger who kept us all on the straight and narrow. Next year it’s a podium place!!
