Primary School Arts Winners

Each year since the inaugural Summer School in 2014 there has been a Primary School Art Competition where all schools in the locality, wishing to participate, have submitted art work by their pupils in four categories based on the theme of the Summer School for that year.

Prior to Tony Lenihan‘s talk, we will run a short presentation of this years winning artworks on the theme of ‘Women who have made a difference’

’Logainmneacha Chill Bharrainn‘ by Tony Lenihan

What are place names (logainmneacha) and why are their meanings so important to so many people?   This talk is a brief overview and survey of townland place names within Kilbarron parish with places like hollow of the sluggardsbrae face of the cranes and land of the rabbits.
