Raising Children Through Irish

A parent and toddler group has always been in our language output plan, we recognise the importance of supporting the families in our area and community raising children through Irish. We see the significant growth of families raising children Irish and they shouldn’t be left with no support  as they have been throughout the years due to a lack of legislation and rights, along with little experience and resources within our own community.

In our old premises, it was not within our capabilities to tend to families and welcome young children into our old building. However, now that we are in Gael-Ionad Mhic Goill, it provided us with yet another development opportunity to engage our community and begin Suí ‘s Scíth. Its is a group which caters to  parents raising children through Irish. It is a social and informal space with a mixture of different activities and specialised play  along with conversational and support hub for parents. In terms of generational language output, we feel that there is little appealing to children under 3 years of age. Children of three year and up attend nursery and are exposed to the language but with this particular project, Glór na Móna are appealing to children under three years of age and their parents. At the moment, we have a membership of 15 parents and 25 children.

This a new project for Glór na Móna along with being a new theme of work for us and going forward, we want to develop this service, our capabilities and abilities to properly address and support families raising children through Irish.
