EVERY year children from local primary schools are invited to participate in a calendar competition themed around Dublin Airport. 

For the 2019 calendar students were asked to write a limerick, a five-line rhyming poem, based on their favourite thing about Dublin Airport.

More than 100 children from three local schools took part in the competition and a winner was chosen for each month of the year.  

All 12 winning entries are now featured in the airport’s 2019 calendar alongside artwork drawn by the winners or a photo representing airport life.

Daa External Communications Coordinator Siobhan O’Donnell said: “Choosing a winner from over 100 entries was really difficult as each entry reflected an individual experience and happy memory of Dublin Airport.

“It was lovely to meet the students and their families and hear first-hand how their experiences travelling through the airport, taking part in Dublin Airport sponsored events in the community, or singing in the terminals as part of our Christmas entertainment inspired their poems.”

Two of the winners were celebrating multiple appearances in Dublin Airport’s calendar.  Lillyaine Ní Sheibhleáin, from Scoil an Duinnínigh, and Delia Toma, from St Margaret’s National School, have featured in the calendar three and two times respectively. Winners received a one-for-all voucher and an A3 cut-out of their winning entry as a souvenir. 

All students and teachers from the three participating schools received copies of the calendar to take home.
