The Patrician School Newbridge hosted County Kildare’s Community Games Art Competition last Sunday as the school yet again opened its doors to budding artists from all over Kildare. The Competition was up to its usual standard as the artists set about creating their own masterpiece for the honour to represent Kildare at the National Finals in Limerick University on 29-31 May. The Categories for the older age group were Badminton, Mini Rugby, Choir, Outdoor Soccer, Table Tennis, Chess, One Wall Handball, Skittles, Gaelic Football and Quiz. The list of themes will be narrowed to four at the National Finals. Those who qualify will be informed of the four fifteen minutes prior to competition start. The U8 and U10 competitors can choose any community games sporting theme.

The Judges were highly impressed with the abundance of talent within the County and after lengthy deliberations they selected the county representative in each age group
