SNAPSHOTS - Returning to The Vee - They're all big lads now!

Snapshots - Back to the Vee

Our SNAPSHOTS feature continues this week on with all the photos also appearing in The Nationalist and Tipperary Star newspapers.

Our picture above was submitted by Ellen McEniry. It is of her son and his three cousins on a return visit to The Vee in the Knockmealdown Mountains many years after their first visit to the exact same spot when they were just little lads.

There are seven new entries in Week 2 from all over the county from Carrick-on-Suir, Ardfinnan, Thurles and even a great then-and-now pair of pictures taken at The Vee over Clogheen.

The winners from Week 1 have also been announced and both these photos will now go forward into the grand final in a couple of weeks time. You can vote for your favourite photos for Week 2 on our online poll which will appear on today.


We have all become used to scrolling through the galleries of photos on our smartphones but what about those much-loved print photographs stashed away in the attic,  in a box under the bed or in that “miscellaneous” drawer in the kitchen?  Are they destined to be forgotten forever in the digital age?

Well, it’s time to dig them out and show them some love.

We want readers to take a photo of those much-loved print photos and send them to us.  Whether it was taken a few years ago on an instant camera or a few decades ago, we want the photo that stands out for you. 

 It can be from a social event, a landscape shot, a funny pic or even a holiday snap - we want them all. Yes, even those dodgy “look at the state of my hair” debs photos!

We want you to dust off the golden oldies, take a picture of your old picture and email it to us. 

We will feature your pictures in both our print and online editions.  In addition to  running your images on and our social media pages we will also carry two pages of your images every week in ‘’The Nationalist.’


We will run a poll every week on  and our weekly online readers can vote for their favourite image of the week. 

Two winners will go forward every week, leaving six of our readers images going forward to the grand finale with a chance to win our amazing prize package. 

The overall winner as voted by the public will win the  fantastic prize.

It's not too late to  enter. All you have to do send your photos to  and we will do the rest!
