Cruinniú na nÓg Carlow 2024

June 15

Crinniu Na nOg

Creative Ireland Carlow is inviting all young people to get creative, try something new, show off their skills and take part in one of the 30 free Cruinniú na nÓg events taking place around the County on Saturday 15th June 2024.

The Cruinniú na nÓg programme is led by the local Creative Ireland Carlow Culture and Creativity Team, coordinated through the County Council Arts Service, with huge support from local youth organisations, creative practitioners, and community groups. This year it includes everything from Comic Book design workshops in Borris library, a Magic Show at Forward Steps Family Resource Centre in Tullow, and a Pop-Up Cinema event in Bagenalstown and so much more!

Launching this year’s programme with participating young people of Bagenalstown, Cllr. Andrea Dalton, Cathaoirleach of Carlow County Council said “This year Cruinniú na nÓg returns with a programme bursting at the seams of events to suit all ages which is fantastic for the young people of County Carlow. I’m delighted that Cruinniú na nÓg Carlow will feature events across the County building new relationships and bringing communities together”.
Speaking about the programme, Creative Communities Engagement Officer, Aileen Nolan added, “Local authorities – together with arts, culture, heritage, community groups and organisations– have always been key to the success of Cruinniú na nÓg and this year is no different.
