What is coming up?

On Saturday the 2nd of September from 11 to 1pm, we plan to host a workshop for new or expectant fathers. This workshop will be facilitated by Shirley Smyth (Project Coordinator Youghal FRI) and Dr Declan Mathews.  Dads are welcome to come along with partner, baby or friend. It will be a relaxed atmosphere focusing on parenting during the first 12 months of baby’s life. The workshop is free. Anyone interested can text Shirley on 0860471060 with their name and the word Dad. Places will be limited so please do text if interested.


We are also planning sensory play, parent and child sessions for parents of babies under 1 year. Parents can express interest by texting Shirley on 0860471060 and the word PEEPS. Shirley will liaise with parents interested to figure out the best day/time that suits the majority.
