Cumann na bhFiann is the largest nationwide Irish language youth service. Weekly/fortnightly Irish language youth clubs as well as regional and national events through Irish are its main focus. This gives young people the opportunity to use and improve their spoken Irish outside of the school environment on a social level. Cumann na bhFiann provides opportunities for young people to meet through the medium of Irish and create networks of Irish speaking friends throughout the country.

Some good reasons for attending Cumann na bhFiann

  • Excellent Supervision
  • Clubs organised in a safe environment
  • Wide range of activities
  • A dedicated staff with commitment to our members
  • System of leadership encouraging students to take up responsibilities
  • An opportunity to speak Irish on a regular basis
  • More than 60 clubs around the country
  • The opportunity to maintain friendships that were made on Coláiste na bhFiann summer courses

When the weekly youth clubs closed in early March 2020 due to COVID-19, there were 57 Clubs all over the country. Since then, we have organised Virtual Clubs online with 38 weekly Clubs taking place throughout 2021.  We are hoping to be allowed to re-open our Local Clubs in halls all over the country after 22/10/2021 when the next stage of the easing of restrictions is to be announced by the Government. As a first step in the process we will be opening a small amount of clubs on a trial basis from the beginning of November until Christmas. Our other Clubs will then re-open in 2022 but we will update this site when confirmed.  Meanwhile, we have a wide range of weekly Virtual Clubs available at the link below.
