Third Years Dawid Kocik and Areej Uquaily travelled to the National Library on Thursday to take part in the semi-finals of Poetry Aloud, a poetry recitation competition organised by Poetry Ireland.
Both students successfully performed memorised poems in the presence of a large audience. Both were required to recite Seamus Heaney's 'The Thatcher', followed by a poem of their own choosing. Areej chose 'Death' by Aneirin Davis, while Dawid chose to perform 'Out in the Dark' by Edward Thomas.
Their achievement is all the more notable as Dawid and Areej were the only students to represent a Limerick school.
Further congratulations to Dawid, who now progresses to the national final.
Well done Dawid and Areej.
