Tadhg wins National Geographic dream holiday

Congratulations to 12-year old Tadhg Verdier from Wicklow who will be jetting out to Costa Rica with his family this week after winning a photographic competition in the National Geographic Kids magazine.

Tadhg was the winner of the Weird but True category, and also the grand prize winner.

He captured this quirky picture of his cute little sister Nora after her she’d been buried under the sparkling stones of Ballyhillin Beach in Co. Donegal, by their dad.

 What National Geographic said “We love this photo so much. We like the fact her red hair matches the red pebbles. The colours are great. It’s odd and funny – fits the category perfectly! It’s our favourite photo in the whole competition!”
