I have written about Northern Ireland's locations associated with Saint Patrick in this post and since it is Ireland's national saint's day once again, that's the 17th March for those of you who don't know, why not show off some more locations with links to the snake-banishing, shamrock-wielding Welshman who became a hit in his adopted country Ireland. And where…
On a rare quiet day taking a break from leading photography tours in Ireland I headed to one of Ireland's most famous landmarks - the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. It was a cold and rainy March afternoon as rain spread across the plain obscuring the distant mountains before clearing long enough to enjoy the view again.

On a recent photo tour of Dublin we stopped in to Trinity College, the famous university in the heart of Ireland's capital, to photograph some of the scenes to be found there.

Today saw the western county of Mayo take on the country's capital, Dublin, in 2016's All-Ireland gaelic football final at Dublin's Croke Park.
It's happening again, earlier this year we had the Luas strike that impacted heavily on visitors to Dublin seeing the two separate lines of the light rail shutting down at weekends and key dates such as St. Patrick's Day and Easter. This time it's the Dublin Bus drivers who are striking, already with two days of stoppages under their belts…
The River Suir is Ireland's third longest river at 184km and seventh largest in terms of flow. It rises in north Tipperary and flows south then turning north and east towards Waterford Harbour where it meets the Celtic Sea flowing through Clonmel, Carrick-on-Suir and Waterford City on its way.
Bluebells Hyacinthoides non-scripta are a common sight throughout Ireland in late spring every year, particularly in woodlands. Here in Sligo the whole woodland floor is carpeted with blue from the native wildflowers, rocks and trees are covered with bright green moss under a canopy of fresh green beech leaves.
Hello and welcome to the redesigned panoramicireland.com. I have been working hard on the site over recent weeks and have now had some time to get out with the camera on my own terms. I've led several photography workshops in Galway over the past few days and today I had a day to myself that didn't include website designing. It's…
Snow rarely lasts for more than a few days when it falls in Ireland. Save for in the high ground, above 600m where it might persist for the winter months on northern slopes. So on waking today when I saw snow in the mountains it was a sensible decision to venture in search of the white stuff.
