Young artists showcase their talent as part of St. John’s Community Centre promotion

As part of the recent initiative to promote St. John’s Community Centre, Lecarrow, a children’s art competition was held. The theme of the art and colouring competition was ‘Our Community’ and it was open to all entries from children aged up to 12 years.

Many different aspects of community life were represented, including the school community, social community, sports community, farming community and spiritual community. The colourful entries reflected what community means to the children who entered. The artwork has been displayed at the Community Centre over the last number of weeks.

  The first prize in the 0-7 years category was awarded to Iarla O Mainnín (aged six), who won a €50 toy shop voucher and a personalised slate by Saoirse Slate Designs. The first place in the 8+ category was awarded to Thomas Rayner (aged ten) who also won a €50 toy shop voucher and bespoke slate by Saoirse Slate Designs. Runners-up prizes in the 0-7 years category were awarded to Erin Morgan (aged four) and Katie Sherringham (aged four), and runners up prizes in the 8+ category were awarded to Padraig Munnelly (aged nine) and Anna Sturgeon (aged nine).

Congratulations to all who entered. Thanks to all who continue to support the St. John’s Community Centre GoFundMe campaign, which closes on December 31st. Donations can still be made until October 31st via GoFundMe, Paypal or cash/cheque to any committee member.
