These stunning scenes of Ireland's coastline might well make you gasp

Hooray for beaches, cliffs and castles.

WE HARDLY NEED to be reminded that Ireland has some stunning coastal views.

Nonetheless, these photos are a nice reminder.

The photographers here all entered the Clean Coasts’ ‘Love Your Coast’ Photography Awards. The results were announced at a ceremony this week at the Waterways Ireland centre in Dublin’s docklands, and the winners share in a prize fund of €5,000.

An electronic exhibition of the Love Your Coast photos is to be displayed at locations in Ireland and abroad in the coming months.

The top ten photos in each category can be found here. These are the top three photos in the different sections, presented in order:
