'Write a Poem' competition

Congratulations to two pupils who have been Highly Commended in the Teaching English magazine 'Write a Poem' competition this year. Both poems have already been posted here: Thomas Emmet's 'The Old Guitarist', based on Picasso's painting (and which he read at the Voices of Poetry evening on Sunday) was commended in the senior cycle competition, and Oliver Glenn-Craigie's 'Tea Pot' was commended in the junior section. Thomas and Oliver have been invited to the awards ceremony in Portlaoise in September.
