Cathaoirleach of Kerry, Cllr. Pat McCarthy congratulated each of the pupils on their wonderful drawings and said that “the standard of the competition is extremely high and it is great to know that these pupils, through their drawings, are contributing to raising awareness of road safety throughout the County”.

Eileen Cunningham, Road Safety Promotion Officer with the Road Safety Authority for the Limerick & Kerry Areas praised the pupils on the high standard of their drawings and said that “the competition reinforces the message of Road Safety, encourages school children to use their imagination and illustrate road safety issues that are important to them”.

Co-ordinator of the event, Michelle Mullane, Staff Officer, Operations & Safety Department, was delighted with all the entries.  “We had over 500 entries from schools around Kerry.  It is fantastic that the teachers/pupils got so strongly involved and it is my hope that each pupil who took part will have an increased awareness of road safety as a result”.
