He said, “I would like to thank all the schools for getting behind this exciting competition. We had over 1,000 entries which is the largest number received since the competition was first launched. This is a testimony to the good work the teachers in the schools do in understanding the importance and need to promote road safety to the children. I wish to congratulate all the winners and particularly at this time, the need to continue to promote road safety in Donegal and help us make the roads of Donegal a safer place for all road users.”
