Stephen McCarthy from Cahersiveen with his award.

A CAHERSIVEEN man’s photo has come second in the World Press Photo awards last night.

Stephen McCarthy’s image was taken during a British and Irish Lions game last summer and it took the runner-up gong at in the sports category of the awards in Amsterdam.

Working for Sportsfile, Stephen took the shot at the Lions’ game with the Maori All Blacks on June 17 last year at Rotorua International Stadium.

His shot shows a plume of steam rising from the scrum into the night sky. It’s a pretty amazing photo.
