Roscommon schools were invited to create art pieces responding to the theme ‘Local Heroes’ using stones, rocks, art materials, and found objects. Students’ art pieces have been collected to create their school’s Rock Art Trail, which pays tribute to all kinds of local heroes, from historical ones to present day figures, and sports heroes to front line workers.
The Rock Art Trails have been created near the schools and in the community, and are all part of Roscommon County Council’s Cathaoirleach Award 2021, which will be announced on June 11th.
The trails are out in the open for everyone to enjoy. The following schools are creating trails:
- St. Paul’s BNS, Castlerea
- Ballyfarnon NS
- Scoil na nAingeal Naofa, Boyle
- Kilteevan National School at Cloonlarge Loop
- Lismoil National School, Curraghboy, Athlone
- Abbey Community College, Boyle
- CBS Roscommon
- Castlerea Community School
- Coláiste Chiaráin, Summerhill, Athlone
Listings of all of the Rock Art Trails will feature in Roscommon County Council’s Cruinniú na nÓg programme so that they can be enjoyed by all on June 12th and throughout the month (adhering to Covid restrictions).
