Congratulations to Daniel Caul, a Transition Year student at St. Joseph’s CBS, Fairview, who was the runner up prize winner in this year’s All Ireland Credit Union Art Competition in the special category 14-17 years.
Marty Whelan (RTE presenter) and Martin Sisk (President of the Irish League of Credit Unions) was at hand to present a cheque to Daniel at an award giving ceremony at Croke Park Conference Centre.
The competition which is one of the biggest for children and adults alike on the island of Ireland attracted over 30,000 entries this year, and ran through a network of over 486 credit unions located throughout Ireland.
This year’s thought provoking theme ‘Gotta Lotta Colour’ was open to interpretation by each entrant but aimed to celebrate the imagination, vibrancy and creativity of Irish people and their communities.
Congratulations also to Brandon Leech, a second year student at St. Joseph’s CBS who won 1st prize in the 14 – 17 yrs category at the Chapter level of the Art Competition representing Fairview Credit Union.
