2012 is the European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations.
To coincide with this, the European Commission Representation in Ireland organised a photography competition for primary schools. Pupils were asked to take a photograph on the themes of active ageing and solidarity between generations.
Boys and girls from fifth and sixth class entered the competition. There was a large number of entries from all over the country. We had three winners. There winning photographs will be on a calendar printed by the European Commission.
