Two Donegal students have been presented with top awards in this year’s 63rd Texaco Children’s Art Competition.
Ruby O’Reilly Duff (13), from Loreto Community School Milford, won a Special Merit Award in the competition.
Another Donegal winner, who also received a Special Merit Award at a ceremony held in Dublin recently, was Kellie McClafferty (16), from Royal & Prior Comprehensive School, Raphoe. Kelly was unable to attend the prize-giving ceremony.
The two talented teens were among the 126 overall winners who received prizes at the national awards ceremony.
Lucy Deegan, a 17-year-old student from Luggacurren, Co. Laois was the overall winner with her piece, entitled ‘Tom – Summer’.
