July's competition was judged by Killarney based photographer, Terry McSweeney, who deemed Noel O’Keeffe and Karen Fleming to be the joint winners.

Mr O'Keefe captured a powerful image of a recent storm at Whitegate whilst Ms Fleming opted for an indoor home studio image, created by consolidating four individual photos.

Second place was awarded to George O’Keeffe who combined firefighting training at his place of work with his love of photography to create a compelling action shot.

Third place was another tie between Mary Thornhill and Donagh Cronin.

Starting with less than 40 members the club’s popularity quickly took off and within six months it had acquired  

over 70 enthusiastic amateur and professional photographers.
