Newtownabbey Man Finds Gold In NIEA Photo Challenge

Stephen Barnes from Newtownabbey, winner of the "NIEA Torch Relay Digital Challenge”, is presented with first prize, a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, by Carrickfergus Castle Manager Janis Smith and DOE Marketing and Design Communications Manager Richard Collett.

The competition challenged members of the public to take memorable photographs that featured NIEA sites and properties on or close by the NI Olympic Torch Relay Route, and then post them on NIEA’s Facebook page.

Stephen’s winning picture depicted the coming together of two iconic images as the Olympic Torch passed by Carrickfergus Castle in June.

Congratulations Stephen!
