2nd June 2016

DECORATED EGG COMPETITION
The Kilflynn Vintage Club are once again sponsoring a painted and decorated egg competition. This year the competition will be open to all primary schools in the County. The cost of entry is €2-00 per child, they can enter both categories and as many eggs as they wish. There are two simple rules, painted eggs can only be painted using any colouring material, no addition of eyes or any other embellishments, decorated eggs are the same as for the painted ones except these eggs can have any additional material stuck to them. The upper age limit is eleven and a half, provided the child is still at primary level. Entries should have the child’s name, age, address and name of their school. €2-00 should be stuck inside the carton and marked as ‘Fragile Eggs’ and posted to the organiser Mr. T. Le Cuirot, Fahavane, Kilflynn, Co. Kerry to reach me by the 16th June. Eggs should be hard boiled, and if using supermarket eggs, they should be lightly sanded before boiling as they have a light coating of wax on them and won’t take the paint. The €2-00 entry fee is to cover administration and return of post for any awards the entries receive.
