Dawid will now proceed to the national final, which will take place in the National Library of Ireland in Dublin on 2nd December. The event will see 29 students from across the country compete in the junior, intermediate and senior categories for the Seamus Heaney Poetry Aloud Award.
Poetry Aloud is an annual poetry speaking competition for post-primary school students across the island of Ireland and was launched in 2006 as Yeats Aloud, becoming Poetry Aloud in 20017. Since then, it has grown enormously from just a few hundred entries to over 1,600 entries in 2016. The prescribed poems in this year’s competition reflect on 1916, World War 1 and also include the work of contemporary Irish poets.
The musical entertainment was provided by Colaiste Chiarain students, coordinated by Ms. Una Feehan. Well done to all award winners across the city and county and to everyone who made this such awards ceremony possible. This annual event is run by An Garda Siochana and is sponsored by Garveys Supervalue.
