Ógras Activities during Covid-19
Even though we're staying home and adhering to Government guidelines regarding Covid-19, nothing can stop Ógras having the craic as Gaeilge! We've still been getting up to all sorts to stay active in Irish at home, and you can be part of it! Check out the below activities, events, clubs and projects that we've been keeping busy with while practicing social distancing, washing our hands regularly and giving thanks to the frontline workers working hard for the good of the country - thank you friends! Ní neart go cur le chéile.
We've had a few online clubs with Ógras clubs, and we're going to start the habit with Óg-Ógras clubs too soon! There's loads you can do in an Irish language Zoom Club - Table Quizzes, Pictionary, Charades and general catchups ginearálta included. If you'd like to be part of a Zoom Club, get in touch with your local Development Officer. Bígí Linn!
Lovely video by Ráth Ó gCormac
Something lovely and uplifting here from Ógras Ráth Ó gCormaic, who worked super hard to complete this project! This video celebrates the local area and frontline workers with wonderful pictures of them, and has two messages:
1. "The members of Ógras Ráth Ó gCormac are extremely grateful for the amazing work being done by the doctors, nurses, carers and everyone on the frontlines, well done. Stay home."
2. "In the shelter of each other the people live". Wash your hands, stay at home and practice social distancing. "There’s no strength without unity"'
Wash Your Hands Art Campaign
Ógras organised an art campaig at the start of April where we asked our members to make some art encouraging people to wash their hands regularly - we got lots of wonderful pictures and a video looking to inspire conscientious hygiene and we shared them all on our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram). Here are some of the pieces we received:
