During Ireland’s first lockdown between March and May of this year, students from across Clare were asked to submit pieces of art work under the theme “My Life at Home”. Tom, Lily and Eve Moloney were among some of the students in Feakle who submitted pieces of art work. In October, art work from students across the county hung proudly in Glór’s art gallery, including the work from Tom, Lily and Eve. Well done to the Moloneys! You can see their art work below:
