Furry Friends at Rathmines Library

Printer-friendly version

My Cat GingerDuring February 2018, Rathmines Library hosted Tarsila Kruse’s exhibition 100 days of Dogs, which features gorgeous illustrations of man's best friend from her new book.  Inspired by Tarsila's exhibition, Rathmines Library decided to hold an art competition, inviting children to draw their own companion animal – whether it was one from a story, an imaginary beast or their own pet.  We were delighted with the results!  The competition entries, which reveal artistic skill, a love for animals, and a sense of fun, went on display in Rathmines Library during March.

Many thanks to all the children who submitted pictures and congratulations to the winners:

33 - Megan O'Toole, My Cat Ginger
27 - Adam Cashell - My beautiful dog
140 - Harper Walsh, My Pet Lurcher called Casper (winner of senior group)
148 - Joanie McGrath, In the Clouds
56-  Sean Crean, The Striped Cobramingo (winner of Junior group)
44- Kayleigh Mae Reyes, Tweet and Flap
