This was the 67th Texaco Children's Art competition.

Eight local students, both young and old, are celebrating success at the recent Texaco Children's Art competition.

It's described as a competition that allows young artists to have their talents and creativity recognised.

The students across the Shannonside Northern Sound region received a Special Merit Award for their artwork.


Seven-year old Róisín Sturgeon, from Glanduff National School, Athlone, was commended for her art work entitled "Stargazing", while 12-year old Zara McLaughlin, of Four Masters National School, Kinlough, scooped an award for her work called "What Do You Think?".

Elsewhere, three Monaghan students have won top prizes.

They were Lucy Carey, aged 11, from Scoil na gCailíní, Castleblayney for 'Hope Blooms', and nine-year-old Lily Conlon and five-year-old Inis Crawley, both pupils at Scoil Naoimh Éanna, Carrickmacross, for their works entitled 'Flamingo Focus' and 'Pastel Peacock'.


Co Cavan also got in on the act, with 18-year-old Darragh Nugent of Bailieborough Community School getting a top prize for his artwork of Conor McGregor.

Aisling Strzoda, aged 15 from Virginia College, was commended for 'With Love, From Grandma' and five-year-old Croiadh Small from St. Michael's National School in Stradone was recognised for 'My Rainbow of Hope'.

The Final Adjudicator, Professor Declan McGonagle said all the artworks "demonstrated high levels of skill and imagination".
