Fairtrade Limerick ran a Christmas card competition for schools in the Limerick City and County area. Students were asked to design a Fairtrade Christmas card.
Congrats to Gavin Browne (3rd year) and Ciara Madigan (1st year) were prize winners in their categories. The prize giving ceremony took place in Thomond Park in December attended by the Lord Major of Limerick as well as representatives from the Limerick Fairtrade Committee.
Well done to all the students who submitted cards for the competition.

Transition year students are in the process of registering Desmond college as a ‘Fairtrade school’. Watch this space as a number of initiatives will take place during Fairtrade Fortnight in February. Watch out for their book mark competition!
