Photographers of the future on show at Lough Boora Culture Night

Children from three national schools took part in the ‘Eyes on Boora’ photography blitz

County Offaly's photographers of the future have been out in force for Culture Night at Lough Boora Discovery Park. 

Children from three national schools took part in the ‘Eyes on Boora’ photography blitz at Bord na Móna’s parklands and wildlife haven.

The young photographers captured animals, plants, landscapes and some of the unique sculptures at the nature and beauty spot.

Lough Boora Parkland’s Manager Tom Egan said the event was a terrific way to “capture the beauty of Lough Boora through the eyes of its most devoted fans and admirers.”

“Lough Boora is a unique place and children react to it with a very special enthusiasm and wonder,” he said.

The photos went on display this afternoon at a Culture Night exhibition in the Lough Boora Discovery Park Visitor Centre.

There were some fantastic pieces on display taken by children Broughall, Coolanarney and Lumcloon National Schools.
