New Irish medium Youth Club to open in Dundalk

As part of a campaign to have a full immersion Gaelcholáiste open in Dundalk under the patronage of An Foras Pátrúnachta, parents are also looking at how to promote Irish with the next generation.
The first step of this is to open a Youth Club ‘as Gaeilge’ supported by Ógras of Conradh na Gaeilge, with a maiden Registration Night for interested children on Thurs 13th February @ 19.00 in the Dundalk Conradh na Gaeilge building, at 5 Seatown Place.
A number of parents and teenagers from TY upwards have already undergone the necessary garda vetting and youth leadership course in preparation for the opening. Parents and children are invited to drop in on Thursday to meet the leaders and enjoy some crafts and games with the team.
The Club is open to children ranging from 5th class to 3rd year and all the games, activities and crafts will be conducted ‘as Gaeilge’. This is an important element in the promotion of Irish in Co. Louth and the organisers believe that it needs as much support from all interested people as possible if it is to be successful.
