The safety of all road users continues to be a priority and due to the current restrictions the Art competition was promoted online this year and once again the standard of drawings submitted was amazing across all ages. The competition reinforces the message of Road Safety, encourages school children to use very unique drawings to highlight how to avoid various dangers on our roads”.

John Campbell, Finn Harps Underage Secretary stated, “This competition is very popular with the Primary School children and Finn Harps are delighted to continue to help promote road safety awareness in Donegal. It is great to see that the pupils, through their drawings, are contributing to raising awareness of the dangers on our roads”.
