Emmy's artwork catches judges' attention

An artwork by eight-year old Fingal student Emmy Aherne, from St. Marnock's National School, Portmarnock, has been chosen to illustrate the 2018 Texaco Children's Art Calendar.

One of 13 chosen to illustrate the publication, Emmy's piece, entitled 'Peek-A-Boo-Panda', will appear during the month of April and will be seen in thousands of homes throughout Ireland in 2018.

Winning a Special Merit Award in the 7-8 years age category of the 2017 competition, it was one of a number said by a competition adjudicator to perfectly reflect the incredible talent and imagination of children and the essential role played by schools who encourage and inspire their students through art education.

Calendars are currently available through a select number of Texaco service stations countrywide.
