Throughout the weekend visit the Mother Tongues stall to play games inspired by Language Explorers, Mother Tongues’ award-winning language awareness initiative for primary schools. Language Explorers activities are designed to raise awareness of linguistic diversity in the classroom and in the community and to promote an interest in language learning.

At our stall in the Rua Red foyer you can also meet the Mother Tongues team and find out about our initiatives for schools, talks for bilingual families and heritage language schools. For more info visit

Mother Tongues is a non-for profit organization aimed at promoting multilingualism in Ireland. We work with schools, families, community groups and artists through a range of activities that allow children to experience language in new and exciting ways outside the home environment.

We believe that parents and educators need to learn about bilingualism (and plurilingualism), children need to experience their heritage language and communities need to come together and enjoy linguistic diversity. Find out more at
