Catch up with Cú Chulainn on the Léargas blog

Mon, Mar 14th, 2016

It’s an important week for Ireland. On 15 March schools across the country will mark Proclamation Day, and on 17 March people across the world will join us to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It’s fitting that in such a week we have a new blog post from teacher John Weir, explaining how his school’s Erasmus+ project introduced the Ireland of Myth and Legend to other countries: “the story of how Cú Chulainn got his name was surely brought to life in Poland, as one of our teachers demonstrated the basics of hurling and then let 30 students loose with camán and sliotar! (A new strand on the Polish P.E. curriculum next year maybe!!)”. John’s post is also a great resource if you’re considering an Erasmus+ application for the upcoming deadline. And if you have some time over a cup (or perhaps a pint..) of tea this week, why not catch up on our recent posts on the evolution of Adult Education in Ireland and the role of European Cooperationthe importance of the international in International Women’s Day, or our tips on making an Erasmus+ application in the Youth field?
