On Thursday April 7th Cian, Dominick and Tiernan travelled to the finals of the Sightsavers Junior Painter of the Year awards. They were presented with the awards for being Regional Winners for Connacht/Ulster. The National Overall Winners were announced on the day and while we weren’t in the top three this year, we were delighted to be there. The standard was extremely high and well done to everyone who was part of the day!
