Cruinniú na nÓg 14th & 15th June 2019

A Day of Youthful Creativity

Ireland is the first, and only, country in the world to have a national day of free creativity for children and young people under 18.

Cruinniú na nÓg is a flagship initiative of the Creative Ireland Programme’s Creative Youth plan to enable the creative potential of children and young people. The inaugural Cruinniú na nÓg took place on 23rd June 2018 with over 500 events taking place in cities, towns and villages across the country.

In partnership with the 31 Local Authorities and supported by RTÉ, thousands of parents, families and young people took part in a wide range of fun, free, creative activities; from graffiti art workshops to stop-motion animation, robot-making to shield-making workshops!


This year events to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg will take place on 14th and 15th June in locations all around Ireland. To see what is happening in Kilkenny please visit the link below:
