Winners of this year's An Post handwriting competition have been treated to a special VIP tour of the historic GPO.

More than 65,000 students around the country from both primary and secondary schools took place in the competition.

Students penned special handwriting entries on the 1916 Rising and what they had learned during the centenary celebrations.

Several of the winners took the trip yesterday, to see the new exhibit entitled GPO Witness History.
