Announcing Clare Island Photo Competition:

To while away the quiet winter months, we are inviting all #ClareIsland fans at home and abroad to submit their best photos of the island.

It’s simple: just email your photo to with a brief background story, and at the end of each month a panel of judges will pick the best picture.

The winner’s name will be published in our local notes, and the picture and name of the photographer will be posted on the Clare Island website and social media pages. Happy snapping!
