Gaeloideachas is delighted to announce the publication of its new booklet Déan Comhrá ‘Cúpla Focal’ for Parents and Guardians. 

This booklet is aimed at parents and guardians of children attending a naíonra or Irish-medium school. It is full of simple, practical vocabulary that can be used at home together on a daily basis. We hope the booklet will help parents find useful phrases and words to use with their children at home while doing homework, having meals together and as part of their daily activities, with the múinteoir or príomhoide and with other parents they meet at the naíonra or school.

There are many benefits of speaking Irish at home with your child and we hope that these words and phrases will help make Irish part of your daily routine. You can help your child build on their confidence and improve their Irish by giving them lots of opportunities to speak Irish outside of the classroom. It will help them greatly to have regular, real reasons for using the language. If they see that you are enthusiastic and positive about the language, they will be too! If you wish to learn Irish yourself, we highly recommended that you use this booklet
alongside our website IrishforParents.ie. You will find many excellent resources on the site which have been specifically developed for the language requirements of parents and guardians of children in Irish-medium education. The website will help you build vocabulary based on relevant topics, help your understanding of spoken
Irish through video and audio files and you can learn more about language structures. We hope you have fun on this journey together. Bain triail as!
