Finn Harps score on road safety 11.01.19

FINN Harps Football Club have again teamed up with Donegal County Council to help promote road safety in the county as the Road Safety Art Competition was officially launched on Tuesday at Scoil an Linbh Iosa in Carrigans.
The club has offered the Donegal Road Safety Working Group a free advertising hoarding in Finn Park to raise awareness about the dangers on our roads.
The road safety advertising hoarding will be designed by a student from one of the county’s national schools through the open art competition.
Finn Harps returns to the Premier Division this season and the winner of the art competition will be announced at Finn Harps first home game of the new season against the current premier league champions and FAI Cup winners Dundalk, at Finn Park on Friday, 22nd February, 2019.
Pictured at the launch of the Road Safety Art Competition which took place at Scoil an Linbh Iosa, Carrigans is Cathaoirleach Seamus ODomhnaill, Chief Executive Seamus Neely, Director of Service John McLaughlin, John Campbell Finn Harps, Kevin McHugh, Finn Harps Soccer Academy, Brian O’Donnell Road Safety Officer, Cllr Paul Canning, Stephen McCaul, DMG Motors along with teachers and pupils from Scoil an Linbh Iosa.
Cllr. Seamus O Domhnaill, said “We are delighted with the continued efforts of Finn Harps Football Club to help us promote greater awareness of the dangers on our roads. The competition will help raise awareness, change behaviour and influence their parents about road safety and it will be an excellent reward for the winner to have their work displayed in Finn Park for the forthcoming season for all to see.”
Speaking at the launch, Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer said, “We are delighted with the continued efforts of Finn Harps Football Club to help us promote greater awareness of the dangers on our roads. The art competition is aimed at encouraging children to express their thoughts on responsible road safety behaviour. We hope that getting children involved at an early stage will assist in establishing responsible road behaviour at a young age. Communicating road safety messages as seen or expressed by children through posters or other means can influence the behaviour of parents and family members”.
