Primary school students in 25 counties throughout Ireland were visited by Mace and Road Safety Authority representatives presenting prizes for the national Cycle Safely to School Art Competition.

The overall national award went to nine year old Morgan McLoughlin from S.N na nGael in Bay Estate, Dundalk Co Louth. Morgan and his class attended a special ceremony in Croke Park where Minister Dermot Ahern T.D. presented him with the award. Morgan received a Raleigh bicycle, helmet and €1000 for his school to spend on educational equipment.

His class will also receive a ‘Cycling Safety and Skills School’ fun workshop in September.

The Mace Safe to School campaign is in its second year running and was launched by RSA chairman Gay Byrne in February.
