Donegal Comhairle na nÓg

About us

Current topics and news: 

Donegal Comhairle na nÓg have enjoyed a really productive two years, picking up two national awards along the way, including an RSA Leading Lights award for the creation of a series of Road Safety advertisements which were broadcast on regional radio stations.

Recent wins:
The group delivered a road-safety presentation on seatbelts on buses to 200 primary school chıldren. They met with the Stranorlar Municipal District committee and delivered a presentation to them on their journey so far. They had PR training at their local meeting and there are also two Comhairle members on the local CYPSC committee.

Our Comhairle’s core topic for 2017 is focusing on Sports Recognition for girls and Body Image. The plan for the sports theme involved a roadshow in the five regions in the county.
Aura Letterkenny – 26th April.
Finn Valley Centre Ballybofey – 4th May
Pobail Scoil Gweedore – 10th May
St Catherine’s Vocational School- 12th May
Scoil Mhuire School Buncrana- 15th May

The roadshow started after Easter and offered girls alternative sports experience with a fun element. Our Body Image topic was be incorporated on the day as part of a questionnaire. How the young people answer these questions will determine the approach our Comhairle will take on the subject.
