Attention Primary Schools of the Oriel Kingdom! Win a Family Annual Pass to Dublin Zoo and other fantastic prizes!

A new community-led environmental organisation has been founded with the aim of protecting and improving our flowing rivers, babbling streams and our mighty deep blue sea.

We are the Oriel River Catchments and Coastal Association (ORCCA).We want the rivers which flow into Dundalk Bay, as well as the region’s coastal environments, to be healthy and full of life for us all to enjoy.

The task!

We are calling on all P5-P7 class pupils to take up the quest to create the official logo for ORCCA so that we can inspire young and old to protect and explore the waters that flow within our communities.

We would like you to find out all about the historic Oriel Kingdom in which we live, to look at the water that is near your school or house, and think about why it is special. Then we would like you to create a picture for the logo of our new organisation.

You may use any type of paper, white, coloured, rough or smooth. The work that you submit may be drawn or painted in pencil, charcoal, pen and ink, crayon, pastel, acrylics, poster colour or collage. Be creative and, most importantly, have fun!


1st prize – Family annual pass to Dublin Zoo and your picture will be used for the new ORCCA logo.

2nd prize – Family trip to Tayto park.

3rd Prize – Family trip to Carlingford adventure centre or Boyne boats.
