Intro Text 

As part of Bike Week (June 9th - 17th), Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council held an Art Competition for primary schools in the County based on the theme ‘Cycling with my Family’.   The aim of the competition was to help create awareness that cycling is a fun, safe, environmentally-friendly way to make short journeys as an alternative to driving.

Prizes were on offer for four categories from junior infants up to sixth class. An Cathaoirleach, Councillor Ossian Smyth, of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council presented the awards to the winners in County Hall on Friday 15 June 2018.

The winners were:

Ciara Farber (aged 9) of Stepaside Educate Together National School.

Aifric Glynn (aged 11) of Scoil Lorcáin, Monkstown.

Dylan O'Keeffe (aged 6) of Gaelscoil Sliabh Rua, Ballyogan.

All three attend the Explorers After School Club. A special thanks is due to Explorers After School Club who encouraged and supported the artists.
