Comeragh Mountains

The Comeragh Mountains are a remarkable and varied range, stretching from the coast near Dungarvan inland as far as Clonmel.

Mahon Falls

The falls may be reached by turning west off the R676 (Dungarvan/Carrick-on-Suir road) at Mahon Bridge. Take a right turn immediately by a shop following the signs for 'Comeragh Drive'. Continue on for about 1 ½ km turn right and travel inwards having the Mahon river on your right. There is parking on your left close by the pathway to the falls.

The Annual IPF Shield Competition took place last weekend 7th November in Malahide Community School. The event was attended by over 27 camera clubs from all over Ireland. CPS was represented by two panels, one mono and one colour. This is the second successive year that CPS has entered the Shield competition. Again we presented two very good panels with a very high standard of work. CPS were placed 11th overall this year. That represents an improvement of seven places on last year albeit in  a larger field of entries.

A very special thanks to all the members who submitted images for the panels, both those that had images go forward and those that did not. Thanks also to Linda and Richard for their time and judgement in selecting panels and to Liam for help in erecting the panels on the day.

The IPF National Shield is an annual inter club competition which is open to all clubs who are affiliated to the IPF. This competition showcases the work of photographers from clubs all over the country. Each competing club may submit a panel of colour prints and/or a panel of monochrome prints. Note that only those clubs who enter both sections will be eligible for the overall award. It’s a highly competitive day, but also filled with good humour and stories as colleagues and friends catch up.

Carlpw Photographic Society is again represented in the IPF shield. Last year we submitted two panels; colour and mono. While we were not placed in the top section, we did however represent the club with a high standard of entries. We are again hoping to feature in this year's competition and with some luck will advance further up the rankings of the clubs in Ireland.

A special thanks to everyone who submitted images for the panels and apologies to those whose images haven't made onto the panels
