Artists do well in Community Games

As always, the County Kildare Community Games Art Competition attracted a large number of budding artists to the Patrician NS, Newbridge, writes Papillon Rabbitte.

This year the children of Kilcullen broke last year's record haul and brought home an incredible nine county medals, including three gold, three silver and three bronze.

The competitors, aged between 6 and 15, had three hours to complete their masterpieces based on Community Games themes. Popular depictions included Futsal, Badminton, Swimming, Cycling, and Athletics.

Well done to all the young artists who performed brilliantly on the day. Super work and a great job by all who represented Kilcullen!
