A COLOURFUL work of art by 13-year old Gorey Community School student Alannah Cheong has been selected to illustrate the 2016 Texaco Children's Art Calendar.

Alannah's study titled 'Two Birds' was one of 13 pictures chosen to illustrate the publication. Her piece features on the month of November page in the calendar.

It will be seen in thousands of homes throughout Ireland in 2016. Alannah won a special merit award in the 12-13 years age category of the 2015 competition.

It was one of a number said by a competition adjudicator to perfectly reflect the incredible talent and imagination of children and the essential role played by schools who encourage and inspire their students through art education. Over recent months, Alannah's work has featured in exhibitions held in Belfast, Cork, Drogheda and Dublin.

Calendars are available through a select number of Texaco service stations countrywide and through Texoil, Valero's home-heating oil division.
