Monaghan County Libraries have teamed up with Tydavnet Twinning Committee to celebrate the arrival of ‘St Dymphna. The Tragedy of an Irish Princess’ to the National Gallery Of Ireland for a limited run. This exhibition has been organised in partnership with The Phoebus Foundation, Antwerp.
Tydavnet Twinning Committee would like to organise their own Exhibition on the life of St. Dympna which will be on display in Tydavnet community centre on Sunday 14th May 2023. As part of this, we would love children from across the County to re-tell the story of St. Dympna their way – it could be a story, a poem, an art piece, a digital creation etc. All forms of creative expression will be accepted. Closing Date is Friday 5th May.
Further information about the life of St Dympna can be found on the Tydavnet Village Website.
This competition is open to children from 3rd – 6th Class. We are also including a SENsational Category for children who have been diagnosed with a Special Educational Need.
If you have any questions please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 047 74702.
Prizes will be awarded for all categories. We will endeavour to include all entries in the exhibition on May 14th.
Please note: All submissions must be accompanied by a signed Entry form.
