A NORTHSIDE teenager has won the Dublin Airport Swords Young Musician of the Year. 

Kristine Bodrova, from Swords, won the competition which sees young people from all over the Swords local electoral area compete in various age ranges and categories including piano, guitar, keyboard, traditional music, strings, contemporary singing, classical voice, woodwind, recorder, brass and a chamber group award.

Bursary prizes and commemorative plates are awarded in each category with the overall winner crowned Swords Young Musician of the Year. Dublin Airport has been sponsoring the competition since its inception 29 years ago and it is one of the longest standing relationships the airport has with a community event in Fingal.

Kristine (15) is a student of St Finian’s Community College in Swords. Dublin Airport has a long-standing relationship with the college through its Business in the Community Skills@Work programme.

Community Liaison Manager at daa Maura Cassidy said: “It was a pleasure to see such great variety of local, young talent from Swords showcased in this wonderful competition. “The standard seems to be higher every year and I want to congratulate all those who took part.

“Kristine is a very accomplished pianist and a very worthy winner of the Swords Young Musician of the Year.”

Ms Cassidy said the daa is very proud to be supporters of this competition and of its strong links to the local community. 

“I am particularly delighted that the overall winner is from one of our partner schools,” she added.
