Sligo Walks Photo Competition

Note: This competition is now closed. The winner is Martin Dorey, who submitted this photo of his daughter Maggie on Knocknarea with views looking out towards Ben Bulben. To get involved in the new Sligo Walks competition in conjunction with the Radisson Blu Hotel in Sligo, visit for details.

In another great Sligo Walks giveaway, we’ve teamed up with top outdoor equipment store Call of the Wild in Sligo. One lucky winner will receive a €150 Call of the Wild voucher to be spent in their Sligo shop on any walking-related item (or items). All you have to do to enter is to send us a photo of your favourite Sligo Walk, and let us know in a couple of sentences why this walk means so much to you.

You could tell us, for example, that this was the walk you took when you proposed to your better half, or maybe it’s where you go to escape from it all. Or it might be where you and the family have shared a special memory, whatever it is, you just need to share a line or two with us to have a chance of winning!

You can submit photos taken with your camera or phone, but it is important your photo is of good quality and you are happy for us to share it on social media. The winning and shortlisted entries may also be posted on the website.

So if you’ve got a Sligo photo stored on your camera, computer or phone, or you get out and about in the next 10 days or so, don’t forget to take your camera or phone with you.

You can tweet your photo to @sligowalks, alternatively you can share it with us via Facebook or Instagram. Use the #sligowalks hashtag when entering the competition via social media. You can also email your photo to

There’s no limit on the number of photos you can send us, or the amount of text you use to accompany them. But you must send us photos individually, along with a short description.

So, get your photos and a line or two in, and who knows, you could be heading over to Call of the Wild for an early Christmas present!

Please note that this competition will close on Friday 24th November 2017.
