Music/Dance/Drama: Good luck to the six girls who will represent the area in the County Finals of the group dancing competition on April 11th. They are Amy Rohan (Lakeview), Triona Crowe, Deirdre Brennan, Sarah Burke, Nicola Roche and Alison Fahy (all of Cregboy). Deirdre will also compete in the individual dance category.
Art: The Art competition, as always, had a huge entry thanks to the support of the local schools. Thanks to the teachers in all the participating schools and especially to Christina Morris who organised the competition and Marie Flannery who had the unenviable job of selecting the winners. Well done to all the children who entered. The standard was very high and the winners can be very proud of themselves. Gold medal winners will progress to the County finals on May 6th.
