Ireland’s stories in images for 2023 will continue its nationwide tour at Waterford Central Library on the 22nd April 2024 when the AIB Press Photographer of the Year Award exhibition goes on public display. The exhibition will be on display in the library for visitors to enjoy until Monday, 13th May 2024.

It features 114 images in total capturing life, both at home and abroad during 2023 and showcasing the very best of Irish press photography.
