Galway couple complete one of the ultimate bucket list challenges of Ireland

This was some commitment, but they'd a lot of fun doing it.

It's said often enough, but we really do live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and a lot of us don't travel around enough to experience the sheer beauty of it all.

But that's not an issue for Conor Hegarty and his husband Michael, who just over two years ago, took on a challenge unlike any other we've seen.

The pair discovered a deck of cards which all had photos of different places in Ireland on them, rather than simply sitting and admiring the lovely pictures, Conor and Michael decided to travel to each of the areas and capture their own picture of the scene.

Along with their dog, Charlie the Kerry Blue Terrier, the pair managed to complete the challenge in 806 days.

Speaking to JOE, Conor said that the hardest part of the whole thing was the weather, as they wanted to make sure it was a similar as possible to the original photos.

Armed with Charlie, and a camper van, the pair made their voyage around Ireland.

We won't include all of the photos below, but you can check out the full album of photos here...
