Congratulations Tighearnan

As part of the transition programme to St. Patrick's High School Keady, primary seven pupils take part in an annual poetry competition. The theme of this year's competition was "childhood". On Wednesday 24th June we received the wonderful news that P7 pupil Tighearnan Mack had won the competition. His poem can be read below. Well done Tighearnan!




Hospital experience


The bars of my cot trap me

like a heavily guarded prison,

but they are also a source of protection.


Polar bear, my favourite toy

Comforts me, his fur

as soft as carpet.


Hospital injections sting me

like an angry wasp.


Colourful objects distract me,

I am a construction worker building the highest possible tower.


A window of colour makes me happy,

As a cat and mouse fight with each other.
