The Birds of the Kerry Biosphere 2023 calendar art competition led to an exhibition featuring over 250 artworks from primary school children all over Kerry.

Hosted by the Kerry Biosphere Reserve and Skellig Scéal Up, it included an evening of storytelling, puppetry and music at Cronin’s Yard in Beaufort to celebrate the summer solstice and the natural heritage.

The event was supported by Creative Ireland and Kerry County Council’s Arts Office, as well as the South Kerry Partnership and Cronin’s Yard.
