Cillian Murphy from Newport was the winner of the seven to nine year old category in the recent Teagasc Farm Safety art competition.
Cillian came up with the concept of a board game in which a number of players can participate to learn the various different dangers on a farm.
The competition was used to raise awareness among children of the dangers and risks around a farm, and to encourage farm families to think about farm safety. Teagasc were very pleased with the response to the competition receiving over 100 entries, and would like to thank everyone who went to the huge effort of entering.
Teagasc Farm Safety Specialist, Francis Bligh, said: "We were overwhelmed with the response to our competition and delighted to have received such high quality entries from all the children who entered. The judges and I had a difficult task to whittle down the entries to three category winners and one overall winner, all which highlighted staying safe on Irish farms. Congratulations to all the winners."
Each entrant will receive an official Jessy’s Farm Safety Champion certification and a goody pack from Teagasc along with runner up prizes sponsored by Agrikids.
