5th Class Category Winner: Orlaith Timmons, Fifth Class at Moycarkey National School in Thurles, Co. Tipperary

Stream by Orlaith Timmons
Salmon in shoals, heading up the river,
Trout dart past the heron, to avoid being dinner.
Reeds by the side, whistle in the breeze,
Eels by the score, slink, and slither with ease
Above are the swallows, dragon flies and the kingfisher,
Moles and the mink, the otter, and the dipper.
