You’ve all seen the themed Google logos (known as Google Doodles) they feature regularly.
Every year they run a competition for Irish kids in different age categories to design a doodle.
They get thousands of entries from across the country and these are narrowed down to 75 finalists for public voting. Winning kids in each category get a laptop for themselves and one for their school. The overall winner’s artwork is used live on google.ie for a day. Voting closes on Feb 6th.
If you have a minute, please take a look and vote for your faves.  There are two in particular that I’d recommend, so give em a vote if you like them too!
I wish I was a Fairy

I wish I was a Concert Pianist

There are excellent entries from Ratoath in every category, making Ratoath (my village) by far the most strongly represented village/town/area or even county in Ireland, so watch out for them if you’re clicking through the categories.
