The following are the results of the 2015-16 Peann agus Pár Literary Competition held in Coláiste Oiriall before Christmas. The adjudicators were very impressed with the standard of entries in all sections commenting on the deeply personal, reflective and almost therapeutic nature of many of the pieces. Four sections of the competition were

devoted to English medium entries and a further four sections were devoted to Irish medium entries.

Buaiteoirí chomórtas scríbhneoireachta Pheann agus Pár i gcuideachta na múinteoirí: an Múinteoir Aoife Nic Liam agus an Múinteoir Roisin Uí Fhearchair.
