Cumann na bhFiann’s Irish Language Youth Clubs

Creidim Ionat

Cumann na bhFiann organises a large network of Irish language Youth Clubs in local halls all over the country, as well as Virtual Clubs (online). These services give young people the opportunity to use and improve their spoken Irish outside of the school environment on a social level. Cumann na bhFiann provides opportunities for young people to meet and make friends throughout the country through the medium of Irish.

Which age group attend the Clubs?

There are two age groups: ‘Óg’ geared towards any primary school children in the 10 – 13 age group, and ‘Sean’ geared towards any secondary school students in the 13-18 age group.


How much do the Clubs cost?
