Poetry Competition Winners

29th Mar 2022

On the 6th March 2020 the then P6-7 class entered a poetry competition co ordinated by Irish-World. The poems were based on the Townlands the children live in and were inspired by work the children carried out on our local poets Patrick Farrell and John Montague. It’s taken two years for the competition to be completed and St Malachy’s has been judged the overall winner! The poets (who are all now in secondary level) have won £500 for our school which will be used by the student council to fund their activities, including the ‘Day of Play’!

Irish World is the Irish Family History Foundation centre for counties Tyrone and Fermanagh. Irish World offers a worldwide service to people whose ancestors came from these counties.

Those with ancestral links with Tyrone or Fermanagh use Irish-World to discover the path to their Irish roots. Our state of the art computerised database allows direct access to all the principal sources of research – church records, baptism records, birth records, marriage records, gravestones, census data and muster rolls.

They also produce periodic heritage publications relating to local history, folklore and culture.
