Marčišovský won over thousands of other photographers in the contest prepared by Ireland’s top provider of tourist information and bookings. “The winning photo by Martin Marčišovský is a fantastic example of what foreign and domestic tourists who spend their holiday in Ireland can expect,” said Lisa Fitzpatrick, the company’s economic manager.
