Gaeilge Bheo!

Dear Gaelscoil parents.
Would you like to practice speaking some Irish over a pint or a coffee with a few other Gaelscoil parents on a Friday evening for an hour?  Anyone interested, come along to The Blue Haven on Friday evenings for a casual cupla focail.  Fluency certainly not required; all levels welcome.
If you'd like to come, even for an occasional Friday, then WhatsApp or text me beforehand to confirm it's happening/meeting time.

Kinsale GAAs Club Development Draw

Three great reasons to support Kinsale GAAs Club Development Draw - this is where the money goes!

(1) Please enjoy the short promo video included below re our Annual Club Development Draw. Fundraising for Phase 2 - development of existing or new facilities is of huge importance going forward considering the growth of our Underage Club with over 600 boys and girls registered in 2018.

(2) Another significant area to continue growing and expanding is our Hurling & Football Coaching Program in all 5 Primary Schools (past 5 years) and the new GAA program introduced into Kinsale Community School last year. These 2 programs not only introduce GAA to all children in school, but emphasises the importance of sport for everyone.

(3) Allowing us to grow with our continually expanding community so that Kinsale GAA can, going forward, always provide the best facilities available to benefit our entire community.

Please click on this Link for promo video:

Please contact Kinsale GAA or any of the coaches how you can support your club!

Thank you all sincerely for your fantastic support.

Adults, youth and children are all invited to take part.

The World Meeting of Families concludes with a Solemn Eucharistic Celebration that will gather individuals and families from all around the world in thanksgiving and communion.  The main celebrant for the Final Mass will be Pope Francis.

For families wishing to attend the Papal Mass in Dublin's Phoenix Park on Sunday 26-August 14:30-16:45, please note for crowd management and security, every adult and child in attendance will require a ticket to access the venue.

Attention Parents of the 2017 Gaelscoil alumni!

Hello Parents of the 2017 Gaelscoil alumni!

If your child (teenager I mean!) would like to volunteer at the Gaelscoil during the month of June please let me know via email so we will work up the rota. 

The school is happy to take 2-4 pupils from 9am to 1:30pm each day as long as they speak in Irish at all times and will get to work assisting Sinead and the other teachers helping out and doing odd jobs.

So if interested let me know asap and so we start distributing a draft schedule.  This was very popular with the previous two years and a great way for them to brush up on their Irish skills again.

Thank you

David Coleman - 2nd Night added Wednesday June 6th 2018

TICKETS AVAILABLE:  https://bookwhen.com/rosariiryan



Good communication is key to healthy connections between you and your children, making it easier to guide, teach, understand, support and even discipline.

The breakdown in communication can leave parents feeling frustrated, desperate and hopeless, or worried about deteriorating relationships.

But it’s never too late to make real changes, and very often small changes can have a big impact. In this evening presentation, Clinical Psychologist David Coleman will guide us through the fundamentals of effective communication, translating psychological theories into common sense advice on how we can best respond to our children, and offering practical guidance for time-strapped, exhausted and stressed parents on how to raise resilient and emotionally intelligent children.

You may be familiar with David’s straightforward, no-jargon approach through his television programmes, books, columns in the Irish Independent or regular contributions to ‘Today with Sean O’Rourke’ on RTE Radio 1.

A parent himself David is open and honest about his own struggles as a parent and how from time to time he fails to ‘take his own advice’. His warm, empathic and often humorous approach to the challenging job of parenting is one of the many reasons he is so well received. David will address: · Making parenting work when you work outside the home ·

How to raise resilient and emotionally intelligent children · Communicating through conflict/setting boundaries, · The importance of listening to understand · Helping children understand and regulate emotions · Supporting a child/teen with anxiety

Blankets of Hope 2018

Over the past few years, the children of Gaelscoil Chionn tSáile have taken part in the "blankets of hope" programme to create lovely blankets which we gave to people in our Cork hospitals as a comforter as they underwent chemo.

We have started again in 2018, and have made great progress as you can see! This year we are asking the 6th class knitters to help 3rd to 5th class. They will go into the classes for an hour for 4 weeks after Easter in the hope that each of the classes will create their own blanket.

So dust off the knitting needles and make a start if you can over Easter. 20 stitches, 20 rows – to end up as a square.
Huge thanks to all the kids who have been busy knitting and the muinteoirí who are very supportive of this programme
