Cllr Cunningham said “well done Andrew. You have done Clogherhead proud. Andrew’s garden tells the story of coastal communities and their way of life and the importance of fish. At a time when coastal communities are under pressure economically and the fishing industry here is facing decimation, Andrew has reminded us of the sustainability of fish and the way of life of these areas. Clogherhead is a very proud fishing village and Andrew has made a beautiful garden feature which reflects the beauty of the area in which we live. A very deserving winner.”

The winning entry was an elaborate water feature with shimmering fish sculptures and an ‘upcycled’ fishing boat which doubles as a kitchen.
