Artistic Lucia's poster impresses judges  06.03.15

CARNDONAGH pupil Lucia Doherty's fantastic artwork has scooped a prize in Donegal's Road Safety Art Competition.
Lucia, who attends St Patrick's Girls' National School, highlighted the topical issue of drivers paying more attention to their smartphones than the road.
And she posed the important question: "Which matters more - your phone or your life?"
Lucia's painting was one of five category winners in the countywide primary school competition, sponsored by Finn Harps Football Club and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group.
A total of almost 750 fantastic artworks were submitted to the annual competition.
The four other category winners were Dylan Carlin, Gleneely N.S., Killygordon; Senan Gavigan, Scoil Náisiúnta Meentinadea, Ardara; Mikaela McConnon, Scoil an Linbh Íosa, Killymard, Donegal Town and Shauna Ní Ghallachóir, Scoil Náisiúnta Gort a Choirce, Leitir Ceanainn.

The overall winner will be unveiled at half time during the Finn Harps v Cabinteely F.C. match in Finn Park on Friday, March 13.
The winning piece will feature as an advertising hoarding at Finn Park promoting road safety for the 2015 season.
Donegal County Council cathaoirleach, Cllr John Campbell said: "The competition showed a very high standard of entry overall. The future of road safety lies in the education of the young."
