Dail na nÓg 2015 took place in Croke Park on Friday 27th November. The theme for this year was: ‘The need for young people to have a stronger voice in their education.  This theme came out of workshop discussions at the Comhairle Showcase 2014 in which over 400 young people voted on the areas of their lives in which they least had a say. Education and School came out on top.

Some 200 young people aged 12-17 took part in Dáil na nÓg to discuss all aspects of this theme – participants took part in workshop discussions and contributed questions at the Q&A session with relevant ministers and government officials in the Department of Education. Delegates are elected to attend Dáil na nÓg through their local Comhairle na nÓg. To read more click here:
