Sunflower Competition winners announced -

Sunflower Competition winners announced - 

The results are in – the measuring tape has been put away , calculations completed and the winners can now be declared .

What a green fingered lot we turned out to be – there was quite a few entrants and the quality was very high. The judging was a stressful affair with the final choices running neck and neck. ( OK , we know sunflowers neither run nor have necks!).

You are my sunshine …” The winner – 5 Church Road

Dannan and Sam celebrate their winner – 27 Bargy Road

The competition was held in two categories - Community(which was open to all residents) and School Child (especially for entrants of school going age).

The winner in the community section was the Fleming family on Church Road and no surprises there! Their magnificent specimen was a sight to behold and couldn’t be missed by anyone passing, including passengers on the 53 and 151.

The winner in the school child section was Dannan O’Loinsigh on Bargy Road . Dannan is pictured below with his horticultural high-rise and is accompanied by his assistant Sam (Maguire) who, we are led to understand, contributed significantly in “watering” the flower over the Summer.

Congratulations to everybody who took part and added a wonderful splash of colour to our community during a very dismal Summer season. Well done to the winners and we all look forward to next years follow up event.
