Meet Coillte, a young boy who is quite bold in school…but is that really the true Coillte? This Irish language workshop will be ideal for all Irish language lovers who enjoy drawing!

Beidh spórt agus spraoi againn le haigh uair go leath le linn féile na Mother Tongues an bliain seo. Beidh Coillte MacMurís linn agus is buachaill dána é – bhuel sin cad a cheapainn gach éinne ach an bhfuil sé sin an firinne? Feicfimid! Agus feicfimid cad a tharla dó taréis a fuar sé caillte sa mhúsaem stair an dúlra. Beimid ag léamh an leabhair nua páiste – Tá Coillte Caillte le céile. Taréis é seo beidh ceardlann ealaíne againn, ag tarraingt féinphortráide agus ainmhithe le chuir isteach san mhúsaem stair an dúlra. Beidh na huirlisí ealaíne go léir ansin duit air an lá agus beidh an ceardlann seo as Gaeilge agus tá fáilte roimh gach duine óg – má tá a lán Gaeilge agat nó píosa beag!
