have as equal an opportunity as others in her school to develop her
education, but Heather made the best out of her situation and with
fantastic support in the form of her parents, she absorbed whatever
she heard and learned that way, a trait to be admired. Another way
Heather made the best of all situations was her light heartedness. She
was forever cracking jokes and never failed to put you in a positive
mood when you were with her. One thing that put Heather herself in a
good mood was drawing. She was particularly talented in sketching
scenarios from her favourite cartoons, and it was through this art form,
that Heather’s vivid imagination shone through. Heather left such
delightful memories with me of her beautiful personality. It’s
extremely unfortunate we cannot create more together, but thankfully
myself and her friends and family, have these memories of Heather
to keep her with us until we can meet her again.
from Mohill Community College travelled to Mullingar Arts Centre to
take part in the Poetry Aloud competition.They competed against
colleges from Mullingar ,Rochfordbridge , Roscommon ,Killina and
Poetry Aloud is an annual poetry speaking competition open to all
post-primary students on the island of Ireland. It is organised by
Poetry Ireland and the National Library of Ireland.
Each student had to recite two poems from the designated anthologies.
When Seamus Heaney won the David Cohen Prize for Lifetime Achievement
in Literature, he nominated Poetry Aloud for the accompanying Clarissa
Luard Award, and he remarked, ‘I truly believe Poetry Aloud deserves
all the support it can get,because it promotes literature,and, in
particular, poetry, widely,intimately and to inestimable effect. But
fundamentally, I choose it because it brings poetry into the memory
and affections of the young in a way that will make it a lifelong
possession and value.”Well done to Eabha Kenny who has progressed to the semi finals of the competition.
Ms Myra Reynolds and Ms Amanda Dolan organised the trip and travelled
with the students.
