Gorgeous Ireland Giveaway

A misty morning at sunrise in Castleconnell, Ireland

Who can resist some of the most gorgeous panoramic images of Ireland? Not us. So when Peter O’Donnell from offered some copies of his Panoramic Landscape Photography of Ireland 2011 calendars to the Irish fireside, we said, “ABSOLUTELY!”

It’s been a while since we had a giveaway, so this seemed like a perfect thing for a Friday morning.

We’ve got 10 calendars and 4 note cards to give away. We’ll randomly choose 14 winners from the comments made between today and Oct 21, 2010 anywhere on the Irish Fireside blog, our Facebook Page or retweets on Twitter.
