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). The new pieces below are 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, musicians, and young people. 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 if your school policy has not sanctioned it due to public health guidance at the time. However, the resources are designed so that they can be used at home, or in the classroom without singing but also, of course, ideally with singing when public health guidance allows.

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.
