Creative artists sought for Book of Kells contest
Trinity College is calling on Ireland's budding artists and writers to get involved in the Book of Kells creative competition.
The nationwide challenge is open to people of all ages to get their pens and paint brushes out, and write a poem, short story or create a drawing or painting based on the images of the world's most famous medieval manuscript.
Laureate na nÓg, author and illustrator PJ Lynch and Senator Lynn Ruane, formerly of Trinity, are ambassadors for the contest and are championing the cultural and artistic importance of the initiative.
Pictured at the launch is Lynn's daughter Jaelynne Ruane (10), who is in fifth class in Scoil Chaitlín Maude, Tallaght. The competition is open to all ages. See www.bookofkells.ie/competition.
