St. Ciaran's Student Tom Murtagh Advances to National Finals of Junk Kouture Competition

We are thrilled to announce that our very own, Tom Murtagh, has achieved a remarkable feat by making it to the National Finals of the prestigious Junk Kouture competition with his awe-inspiring creation, "The Morrigan." Tom's innovative design not only showcases his boundless creativity but also carries a profound message about the farming industry, making it an exceptional piece of living art.

What makes "The Morrigan" truly remarkable is its intricate construction from organic waste materials sourced from farms. Tom's ingenious use of wool and bones not only highlights his artistic flair but also emphasises the importance of sustainability and resourcefulness in today's world. Through his creation, Tom sheds light on the potential of transforming seemingly ordinary materials into extraordinary works of art with a powerful message.

Tom's dedication to his craft is evident in the countless hours he has spent meticulously weaving together the elements of "The Morrigan." His passion and perseverance have not gone unnoticed, as his creation has already garnered significant attention, capturing the interest of all the judges in the competition. Tom's unique method of creation has set him apart, demonstrating his innovative approach to design and his ability to captivate audiences with his artistic vision.

Ms. Emma Byrne, Tom's art teacher, is incredibly proud of the work that Tom has created and has attended each stage of the competition to support him on this journey. Her guidance and encouragement reflects the dedication and commitment of our teachers to nurture and inspire our students.

This milestone marks a historic moment for St. Ciaran's, as it is the first time a student from our school has reached such a prestigious level in the Junk Kouture competition. Tom's achievement fills us with immense pride and serves as a testament to the talent and creativity nurtured within our school community.

As Tom prepares to compete in the Finals in Dublin this coming May, we extend our heartfelt congratulations and unwavering support. His journey is a testament to the limitless potential of our students, and we have no doubt that he will continue to inspire and impress with his remarkable talent. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Tom the very best of luck in the upcoming finals and in his creative future.
