On the weekend of the 26th and 27th May, 2007, George Sevastopulo lead us on a visit to the Burren. With numerous cameras in action, an informal competition was held in three categories: Caption, Geological Feature and Plant. Here are the winners, as adjudicated by Billy Moore, who hopes he hasn't thereby lost any friends.
