A primary school student from Dublin has been named the winner of the fifth-class category 2022 Something Fishy Poster Competition, writes Rachel Cunningham.

Emma Kilmurry, a fifth-class pupil from Sacred Heart School, Clondalkin, won the national poster competition, which is organised by Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) in conjunction with Blackrock Education Centre.

Primary school students around the country responded to the prompt to create a poster with the ‘catch-photo-release’ message that could be used in awareness campaigns.

Announcing the winners, Suzanne Campion, Head of Business Development at Inland Fisheries Ireland, said: “It is reassuring to see the level of awareness that today’s young people have on issues around conservation and protection of our fisheries resource. Engagement in these issues early on is promising for future generations to be active stewards over our inland fisheries and the surrounding environment.’
