Inland Fisheries Ireland fishing for young poets in Louth

Front Page

Inland Fisheries Ireland and the Blackrock Education Centre are running the national ‘Something Fishy’ poetry competition aimed at 5th and 6th class primary school students in County Louth and nationwide.

It is an opportunity for students to get creative at home and learn about fish. This is the second year the competition has been run as a fun way for students to learn more about fish and their environment while also being in with a chance to win some great prizes.

The competition is to write an acrostic poem; in which the first letter of each line spells out a word. Each student is to spell out the word ‘STREAM’ to write their own acrostic poem. 

Students are also encouraged to illustrate their poems with their own artwork. Only one entry is permitted per student and it is to be original work. The closing date for entries is Friday, 28th of May 2021.

Parents/ Guardians are being asked to email the entry to outreach@fisheriesireland.ie and to include the student’s name, class (5th or 6th) and school name and address.

Suzanne Campion of Inland Fisheries Ireland said: “We are looking forward to seeing the imaginative works the young poets create. There are lots of fun and interactive resources available on www.somethingfishy.ie to help inspire budding poets.”

The entries will be divided into three categories: 5th class, 6th class and entries in Irish with three prizes in each Category.

  • 1st prize- Fishing kit (to the value of €100)
  • 2nd prize- Outdoor field trip kit (to the value of €50)
  • 3rd prize- Goody Bag (to the value of €30)   

The winning illustrated poems will be chosen by a panel of judges and the winners will be announced on the 18th of June 2021.
