The Battle of Clontarf 1014 Project Competition
Clontarf Historical Society and Raheny Heritage Society are delighted to announce the commencement of their Schools Challenge 2014 to mark the millennium anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf. These competitions are being run in conjunction with primary and secondary schools in Clontarf, Raheny and invited schools in Dublin 3 and Dublin 5.
The societies have been working closing with representatives from Killaloe, Cashel, East Galway and Armagh to mark the millennium commemorations and with these groups running competitions locally and having local winners participating in the national finals.
Of course none of this would be possible without the support of our sponsor Cuisine de France, who is the number one supplier and manufacturer of freshly baked bread and confectionery in Ireland."Cuisine de France is delighted to be sponsoring this initiative, it's great to see so many schools from around the country working together to commemorate an important time in our history. We look forward to seeing the talented entries coming in over the next few weeks." Claire Keane, Brand Communications Manager, Cuisine de France.
The first competition will be a project competition on the theme of The Battle of Clontarf 1014. Students may include projects on the Vikings, the founding of Dublin, Brian Boru or any thing associated with the theme. Completed projects can be submitted in a number of formats - A4, A3 or A1 for the more adventurous! Each school will select the category winners and these will then go on to the national finals for judging.
The closing date for the competition is Friday 14th March and the winning projects will be exhibited at the Battle of Clontarf Historical & Community Exhibition in St Anthony's Hall, Clontarf Road on the weekend of the 28th - 30th March.
