Organiser Bernadette Foley outlines the theme of the art competition 'Dublin and its Liberties'.

Young artists submitted their portrayals of The Liberties featuring various occupations, buildings and events synonymous with this area of Dublin over the years. The works included depictions of weavers, Strongbow's tomb, St Patrick's Cathedral, a Georgian house, and an explosion in Dirty Lane.
