We are shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Séumas O’Brien, former National Chairperson of Foróige (2004-2006). Séumas was a current serving member of the organisation’s National Council, a volunteer with Glanmire Youth Project and former Club Leader of Knockraha Foróige Club in Co. Cork.
Séumas was a tower of quiet strength and wisdom. He was a remarkable man who was driven by a deep concern for other people and a profound belief in the potential of every young person.
Congratulations to The Positivity Pages, Co. Tipperary who are the winners of this year's Aldi Ireland Foróige Youth Citizenship Awards!
For their Citizenship Project, they started a monthly youth newspaper to spread positivity and awareness about minding your mental health.
This year is the fiftieth anniversary of the Youth Citizenship Programme, which was first run by Foróige in 1969. 2019 has been the biggest year for the programme ever, with over 14,000 young people taking part.
The amazing Foróige Cookie Force group from Mulhuddart met up with Cian McCormack from RTE Radio 1's Morning Ireland.
They told him all about their Aldi Foróige Youth Citizenship project, where they give sweet treats out locally, to reach out to people and get to know their community better.
More than 30 acts from all over Ireland travelled to Athlone on Saturday for the final of Foróige's Got Talent 2019!
The audience at the Dean Crowe Theatre were treated to incredible performances from young people in the Dance, Variety, and Singing Category.
Aoife Duignan from Arigna Foroige Club, Co. Roscommon, who wowed the judges with her version of 'This is Me', was named the overall winner in the Singing Category.
A big thanks to the Business All-Stars who invited Foróige's Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship Programme to the Business All Star - Accreditation Ceremony & TRIBE Gathering in Croke Park last Tuesday. Over 300 businesses were newly accredited companies to the TRIBE!
Elaine Carroll, CEO of the All-Ireland Business Foundation opened the awards and highlighted the 3 main pillars of the Foundation – Collaboration, Inspiration and Celebration.
A large crowd attended the Ballineen Foróige Young Engineers Exhibition in Cork last weekend.
