Ardee girl Shaney McConnon wins art competition to switch on RTE's Christmas lights
Ardee schoolgirl Shaney McConnon won the RTE news2day Christmas Light competition this year.
It is a great achievement for the budding artist as it is a national art competition, open to all primary schools across the country.
The theme this year was 'My Christmas Wish'. Shaney made a 3-D house enclosed in a snow globe with a banner outside that read 'My Christmas Wish is Homes for the Homeless'.
Shaney, who attends Ardee Educate Together NS, will be on RTE NEWS2DAY at 4.20 on RTE 2 on Friday December 1st to turn on the RTE Christmas Lights.
The school are extremely proud of all Shaney's hard work and hopes she enjoys her day in the RTE studio.
