Dundalk student’s imagination unleashed at national art competition

Local talent Kevin Meenan from St Bridget’s School

The winners of one of the nation’s largest and longest-running art competitions were announced at the weekend in Croke Park.

30,000 entries were received for the annual Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) All Ireland Art Competition, now in its 34th year. The eleven category winners, from all age groups, attended the prize-giving ceremony accompanied by family and friends. They received cash prizes from broadcasting personality Marty Whelan.

Amongst the winning entries was our very own local talent Kevin Meenan from St Bridget’s School, who demonstrated such imaginative interpretations of the theme.

Cuchullain Credit Union CEO, Brigene Litchfield attended the event and said: “There is a thriving creative and artistic culture in local communities across the island of Ireland and it was fantastic to see that Cuchullain Credit Union was represented by a very talented young chap Kevin Meenan, his great work is a shining example of the flourishing creative skill developed in our local schools.

“I extend a huge congratulations to Kevin and each and every artist that participated in this competition and I look forward to seeing more artistic creations in the future.”
