Bord Na nÓg announcement

Last week we invited all of the children in Irishtown and Ballindine National schools to suggest what the name of our new youth academy is going to be. And they most certainly did not disappoint!
The sheer variety and inventiveness of the suggestions made the selection process quite a tricky task.
After first shortlisting the entries, a subsequent vote by the Bord na n-Óg committee and consultation with our Senior committee, we are thrilled to announce the name for our new Youth Academy:
Thank you to all the boys and girls who gave us such super suggestions (even the one or two mischievous proposals from children with parents that are affiliated to our neighbouring clubs, which was to be expected and which gave us a good laugh 😊).
Now that the Academy name has been confirmed, we will be asking for the children’s input once more to help us design a logo for The Davitts Dragons!
This Monday (29th Jan), entry sheets will once again be distributed in both National schools, and the children will have an opportunity to express their creativity and artistic talents.
The sheets will be collected on Thursday 01st Feb, which will allow plenty of time for the children (and any parents that want to partake) to have a think about what a logo (or what aspects of a logo) for The Davitts Dragons might potentially look like.
We are really, really looking forward to seeing what ideas come back to us at the end of the week…so, get ready to channel your inner Michealangelo (Stephens?), Picasso (Kilkenny?) or Rembrandt (Treacy?) 🎨 🖌
