Carnabhal na nGaelscoileanna, which is an opportunity to meet up with two other Gaelscoileanna for a one day Carnabhal at Ionad Óige na hÉireann, Co na Mí. Below also is information regarding ‘Try out a Club’ in your school.
Try out a Club in your school
Cumann na bhFiann will support a startup Club by running a Trial Club in your school for up to four weeks. The aim of this, is to help out a Club leader by showing them how best to run a Club and show different Game concepts that promote the use of the language.
Ionad Óige na hÉireann is the first all Irish language centre for young people in Ireland. The centre aims to provide an all Irish language environment for young people to use their Irish in a relaxed social and natural setting. This is achieved through organised activities in areas of music, art, sport, drama etc. It is our belief that young people must be provided with facilities of a high standard enabling them to develop a pride and a grá for the language which makes it real for them.

Carnabhal na nGaelscoileanna
Carnival of the Gaelscoileanna is a school trip, for the children of the Gaelscoileanna and Gaeltacht schools. There is a choice of three different venues, where the Gaelscoileanna Carnival will take place in, Co. Meath, Co. Meath. Cork and Co. Tyrone during the month of June. Carnival of the Gaelscoileanna provides an opportunity for school children to meet students from other Gaelscoileanna on a journey entirely through the medium of Irish. This is a great opportunity to normalize the speaking of Irish for your pupils, outside the classroom / school gates and to build on the good work you are already doing in the school.
