Beautiful photos of Irish Heritage Sites/Wiki Loves Monuments

The winners of this year’s Irish Wiki Loves Monuments photo competition have just been announced and as usual the standard is exceptionally high. Wiki Loves Monuments is an international photo contest, organised by Wikimedia, which aims to raise awareness of cultural monuments by creating a crowd-sourced bank of quality images that will be free to use for education. This wonderful project is open to both amateur and professional photographers and the top 10 ten entries for Ireland can be view below.
