Clare Healy wins National Translation Competition

Clare Healy wins National Translation Competition

Senior Cycle Modern Language students took part in a national translation competition, organised by NUI Galway. The task was to translate a poem from the target language into English without using Google Translate. The translations of the poetry were assessed on their individuality, creativity and use of language. We are delighted that Clare Healy, a 5th year student, won first prize in the French competition. She recently attended a prize-giving ceremony in NUI Galway where she was presented with the fine sum of €200 and a certificate for her efforts. Clare is studying both French and Italian for her Leaving Certificate. We are very proud of her. Féliciations, Clare!
