A talented Wexford teenager, Naoise Hennessy, from Craanford, Gorey, is the overall winner of the 65th Texaco Children’s Art Competition. She is a student at Coláiste Bhríde, Carnew.
Naoise’s winning art entry, entitled Lifelines, is a portrait of an elderly lady delicately reproduced using water colour pencils throughout.
Judges were impressed with how the 16-year-old captured the features and characters of her “extremely challenging” subject.
Naoise is well-known locally as an All Ireland medal winner and goal-scoring forward on the county’s under 16 camogie team.
She is now enjoying new-found fame as the overall winner of the art competition that attracted over 25,000 entries across Ireland.
