Summer 2021 plans


We are disappointed that we will be unable to facilitate our annual ‘Mol An Oige’ summer scheme this year, it was a unanimous decision that was of course heavily influenced by Covid 19. We acknowledge that many parents & children are disappointed.  This decision was not taken lightly, we focused on 2 reasons for our decision. Firstly we felt that we could not exclude, this would have been a necessity as we would have had to significantly lower our numbers due to the space we have, we also felt the atmosphere would be impacted with the many restrictions we would have to put in place.

We will be facilitating a summer programme for our young people aged 14 plus. details of this to follow!
