Donegal Road Safety Art Competition 04.02.22

THE Donegal Road Safety Working Group and Finn Harps FC have once again teamed up to assist with the promotion of road safety with the Primary School Road Safety Art Competition. The Road Safety Art Competition invites young artists, from Inishowen primary schools, to create a piece of visual art that will raise awareness of how to stay safe on our roads. The theme of the competition this year is “Travelling to School Safely”. The winning artwork will be displayed at Finn Park for the 2022 season and also at Kernan’s Supermarkets, Newtowncunningham and Drumkeen. There will be individual prizes as well as a special prize for the school of the winning pupil.
Brendan O’Donnell, Director of Service Roads & Transportation, John McLaughlin, Chief Executive, Donegal County Council, Cllr. Jack Murray, Cathaoirleach, Donegal County Council, Aisling Dignam, Manager, Finn Harps Academy and Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer.
Cllr. Jack Murray, Cathaoirleach, Donegal County Council said, “Donegal County Council are delighted with the continued efforts of Finn Harps Football Club to help promote greater awareness of the dangers on our roads. Children are among our most vulnerable road users so we all have a responsibility to make sure they develop good road safety habits at an early age. The Primary School Art Competition will help raise awareness, change behaviour and influence all road users about road safety. Everyone who uses the roads has a role to play in keeping our roads safe”.
