The skill and talent of four Kerry youngsters will soon be on display for all to see after their entries into this year’s annual Texaco Children’s Art Competition were picked out from the crowd and chosen to receive Special Merit Awards.

The entries from Roibeard O'Lubhaing (7) from Scoil an Fhirtearaigh, Tra Lí; Ella De Mórdha (6), from Scoil Dhún Chaoin, Trá Lí; and Lucy Warszawska (15), and Clodagh McCluskey (16), both pupils at Presentation Secondary School, Tralee all “displayed high levels of skill and creativity.” said Final Adjudicator, Professor Gary Granville.

Clodagh McCluskey is no stranger to success in this competition with the then 15-year-old winning first prize in the 14-15 years age category last year.

The Texaco Children’s Art Competition is popularly regarded as the longest-running sponsorship in the history of arts sponsoring in Ireland, with an unbroken history that dates back to the very first Competition held in 1955. This year, as has been the case throughout its life, it has been a platform on which young artists from Kerry and counties throughout Ireland have had their talents recognised and their creativity commended.
