Some attractive images of Westmeath are featured in a new book focusing on the 'Ireland's Ancient East' tourism trail.
The book is an impressive photographic journey from Irish Book Award nominee Carsten Krieger. It is published by The O'Brien Press and went on sale from Monday, priced €14.99.
It follows on from the author's previous book on 'Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way' which was nominated for the Irish Book Award.
Over 200 photos are included in 'Ireland's Ancient East' and these include images of the Hill of Uisneach in Westmeath along with some evocative shots of other rural parts of the Lake County.
The author, who is based in Clare, has published five books of landscape and wildlife photography. His work has also been published in magazines and calendars, and he exhibits both here and abroad on a regular basis.
The Ireland's Ancient East trail was launched in April 2015, in a bid to emulate the success of the Wild Atlantic Way. The area covered includes the counties of Leinster along with others such as Cavan, Waterford, Tipperary, and parts of Cork and Limerick.
