Artists take the Walk of Life with Cara Credit Union’s Art Competition

Excitement was in the air as over 100 people attended Cara Credit Union’s Prize Giving Night in Manor West Hotel, Tralee. Invited guests included our inspirational artists from Tralee, Castleisland and Killorglin and their families.  The theme of this year’s Credit Union Art Competition was the ‘Walk of Life’ and this theme was excellently executed in all age group from under 7’s right up to the adult category.

Speaking to Pa Laide, CEO, Cara Credit Union “Prizegiving Night is a great night for our winners and their families and is testimony of the commitment students, parents, teachers and schools give to the support of our youth activities. We were delighted to see so many of our schools encourage their students to participate in the Credit Union Art Competition. This is a fantastic opportunity to display and showcase the level of talent within our common bond. All 1st prize winners will now go on to represent Cara Credit Union at Chapter 23 (regional level) of the competition.”

Cara Credit Union can confidently say that the ‘future is in safe hands’ judging by the level of interest our younger members have in the Credit Union movement via our Art Competition and Credit Union Quiz, which will be held on Sunday 2nd February 2020. Prizegiving night follows on from the Education Awards held last week, where 7 lucky third level students each received €1,500 towards their studies.
