An artistic Gaelscoil Charraig na Siuire pupil has been announced as the overall winner of  Carrick-on-Suir Lions Club's annual Peace Poster Contest.

In the meantime, Jack's winning poster and the posters of all the runner up award winners are on display in Carrick-on-Suir Library. 

Students from 11 other schools in Carrick-on-Suir and its surrounding rural communities entered the art contest, the them of which was "The Future of Peace".
