YouthSing Ireland

Funded and supported by Creative Ireland

WELCOME TO YOUTHSING IRELAND

YouthSing Ireland is an initiative that is led by Sing Ireland and supported by Creative Ireland. As part of the work, the below newly composed and developed resources in Irish or of Irish cultural heritage have been specifically commissioned for YouthSing Ireland and are designed to be used in formal (classroom) and informal settings (outside of the classroom). There are a sample of the new pieces below by Seán Doherty, Róisín Blunnie and Anne-Marie O’Farrell. These resources are intended to give access to fun and developmental resources to be used by teachers in the classroom. The resources created in partnership with Folens education publishers are ideal resources both at home, in the community, and in the classroom.

NB: During COVID-19 restrictions and to comply with public health guidance, YouthSing Ireland is NOT encouraging group singing in the classroom but rather asks that young people will engage with the non-singing resources or continue with learning and singing at home.

EXCITING NEW SONGS AND RESOURCES

Please find all of the songs and resources below, along with information on SingSpace online sessions, which will complement the work that can be undertaken in classrooms as part of YouthSing Ireland. Once restrictions are eased, there will be face-to-face SingSpace sessions announced. Further pieces are in final development. A suite of resources will soon be available.
