Local photographer Shane Claffey has shared an incredible aerial photograph of Birr.

Shane said he captured the image to show some of the positive in the area after a difficult year for businesses and individuals due to Covid-19.

The image shows the Square in Birr lit up for Christmas.  

Shane said he was "delighted to get a chance to pop the drone up in Birr" to get a glimpse of the Christmas lights from the sky.

"What a great effort put in by all involved in the Birr Christmas Lights Group - it looks absolutely fantastic! Get out there, have a look, pop around to a few of the shops and make an evening of it," he added.

Locals reacted with delight to the image with Brendan O'Callaghan saying: "Beautiful photograph. Feel nostalgic for the old town right now."
